Little House Near Amur Bay, 
Primorskiy Kray, Russia
9" x 12"   oil on canvas
 $60.

The Virtual Paintout has traveled to Vladivostok, Russia and to the region south of it, Primorskiy Kray, this month. Using Google Maps Street View, we stop to paint the local landscape when we find something that interests us. I found this little house in a place called Kanal, not far from Amur Bay. (The link is here.) I loved the look of it, with its big windows and waterfront views. It seemed like the thing everyone would want to have, a little house by the sea!



This piece is painted on all sides; you can frame it up, or you can hang it, just as it is.

 Mid-afternoon on Moffett 
9" x 12"    oil on canvas
$75

Anybody who has sat in traffic, waiting for the train to go by so they could get into downtown Mountain View,  will recognize this scene. Moffett Blvd. has long been an unimposing route to our downtown, but that is all changing. The low, modest buildings are on their way out so that a high-rise, high-rent complex can be built. Gone will be the old social service building and an old garage next to it, along with those tall beautiful trees and the "mountain view" behind them. Fortunately the building on the corner - once Joe's Auto Supply, is still here (for now). I wanted to paint this scene so people around here might look at the painting one day and say  "...yeah, I remember how it used to be!"


 This piece is painted on all sides — it can be framed, or you can just hang it, as it is.

 Gardens Gone Wild!
11" x 14" oil on canvas
 $99

This garden is out of control!  Remnants of spring flowers ramble along beside the early poppies creating chaos and color. I should put down the brushes, and go for the clippers to bring a bit of order to this place — but I just don't think that is going to happen! Where some people will spend their time planting and pruning their garden, getting it all neat and tidy, others will spend that time painting it! 



This piece is painted on all sides - it can be framed, or you can just hang it as it is.
