Apricot Jam. 12 x 16 inches, pastel.

My mom and I made apricot jam for 5 hours last weekend. I loved the color of the jam and included it in a demonstration still-life that I created for the Frank Bette Center Plein Air paintout. What a wonderful reason to use orange!

Cottonwoods, 23 x 26 inches, pastel.

Here is a work in progress done from a photo taken at one of my favorite painting spots in Bolinas. I do not think it is really done yet, in spite of having signed it.

Alameda Crane, 9x12 inches, pastel.

This painting was completed as a demonstration for my workshop in Alameda. The color harmony of the painting is really the point. I was pleased with the fairly original color harmonies in the painting.
