California Gold 14" x 18" acrylic $3500
This painting was two years in the making because of experimentation with various skies and shapes of the mountains. I saw this while driving on Highway 101 near San Luis Obispo and the slice of light is what attracted me to make an emergency stop and snap a couple of pictures from which this painting was created. This part of the coast range is already beautiful, but this light made it indescribable - so, in this case, a painting is worth a thousand words! My Facebook Page My Website
My passion, which started early in life, is creating paintings of wild animals in their natural habitat. For me the best part of being a professional artist is spending time in the field studying and observing birds and animals. We live in such an amazing world, I just want to soak in as much as possible and share it with others through my paintings.
