GOLD
I've always had a great time in the gold country. It's the seat of the 1848 California gold rush and has so much history. This painting is a composite of my memories of that area with the American River and farm lands dotting the valley below the Sierra foothills..

ASSEMBLY AT SMITH
In this oil painting, I took elements from various weekend walks near Smith Ranch and compiled them into this single oil painting. Most of the components like the island and estuary were taken from the ponds near one of my usual hikes. I always wanted to explore this small, isolated island that I often see so in this painting I created a road leading across the water and ending under a tall tree. Here's where I imagine that I could sit and look back at the rest of the world.
Sometimes I’d see tractors at the nearby farm and their crops graphically inspired me to add them to this painting. I always see Mother Natures artistic hand creating and designing and I just take advantage of this.

THE VINTAGE
In this painting, I imagined the grapes, vegetables, flowers and trees rising from the earth and being transformed into a magnificent creation of colors and shapes. Playing on the idea of vintage, I added the vintage of vineyards and a vintage 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO.

Geo Paintings
Exploring geometric landscape forms. A series of oil paintings inspired by precisionism of the 1920s.
TOLAY GRAPES
I've finally gotten around to painting my 3 local ponds which are usually full of geese and white pelican. In the process, I decided to add in the grapevines and olive trees that I see on my drives to the wine country.

A DRIVE THROUGH THE COUNTRY
In this painting I was inspired by the geometric shapes of local farms, vineyards and rolling hills with the bay and mountains in the distance.
