From my last ride over to Point Reyes National Seashore. I loved the greens and the shadows. Pam stopped the car without me asking to get this image. The light was amazing.

This is where I currently am with this painting. Every time I post it I see something that needs correction. The painting in the background was the centerpiece of my Moms art collection. Of course its one of my paintings of Pritchard Road in Commerce. UPDATE: I showed this version to the model and she gave the painting her approval. Im calling it done.

The second sketch completed in the gardens. I really wanted to work on this more but Pam said it was done. I respect her opinion and its done.

Last week we went over to the botanical gardens here in Austin. This was the first sketch. Its a little waterfall they created. Its part of the dinosaur exhibit (I think). I liked the new greens and the light on the water.

This little image is from my days in Swampscott, Massachusetts. I spent many days in this little cove just enjoying the sound of the ocean and my insignificance.

I finally finished the background. Downtown San Francisco. I painted it because this man intrigued me. I was curious about his story and what led him to where he is. The figure in the background represents the observer.

We were on our way to Point Reyes and saw this to our left. The light was beautiful. Im letting it sit for a while.

This one is done. I liked that corner. The body language was rich. Plus I love using reds and oranges.

Patrons of Little City Cafe. I was working with markers and that made it easier to get the large shapes in fast. The lady with the bag took about a minute with the markers.
