Thanks to everyone who attended my recent show and thanks to those who made it possible. It was pretty quick notice but it went off well. The best part was all the kids who attended. Toward the end of the evening, we gave them paper and markers and let them create works of their own. It was a lot of fun.

There are a 13 new images. Dead Tree against Clouds is an older work in ink and brush. Bend in River with Distant Pines, version 1, version 2 and version 3 all depict the same scene. They are all part of a recent commission, along with Sundown on River with Distant Pines. My favorite of the newly posted works is probably View down Brisk Stream.

I have scanned a batch of works and will be posting them soon. Eight are entirely new. The rest are older works that have never been online. One of the new pieces is based on Sketch for Heavily Pruned Tree among Roses.

I will be posting three new pieces soon. Right now they need to settle, propped up where I can consider what I did well and what poorly, and so I can make small changes without messing them up, hopefully. Two are different versions of the same river scene. The third is based on Sketch for Redwood and Fallen Pines.

The sketches from my recent trip are now online. The first was done outside Arnold near Big Trees. I was pressed for time so I just parked along the road and went down the slope about fifty feet. Things are beautiful there, just off the road. The second was done the same evening in Murphys. It was dusk but I remembered a tree I had seen the day before situated conveniently near a lamppost. The scene had to be compacted a good bit to get everything in. The third sketch was begun in a rush in Moss Beach and finished on the way to the airport, but I think it came out well. I have also added sketches for View across Inlet and Willow in Shallow Water.

Thanks to everyone who visited my recent open studio in Murphys, California. It was a lot of fun meeting you. And thanks to the Calaveras County Arts Council for sponsoring the event. I did three sketches while I was in the area, one in Murphys, one near Big Trees and a third near Half Moon Bay. I will post the sketches soon.
