"En plein air" at a historic ranch. I couldn't resist the cows. I was told that in the late afternoon the calves all begin to cavort with each other, I intend to visit the ranch next time at that time. and do another painting.
Painted "en plein air" on a beautiful day in Balboa Park, San Diego. From the entrance to the Acazar garden. Finished primarily with Palette Knife in the studio. With painting pals, Pat Ford and Terry Chacon.
From my imagination but only after studying my Aspens and the aspens up at the Santa Fe Ski Slope. See Aspen paintings - studio and plein air. Palette Knife only. Title borrowed from a friend's description. Not for sale.
Capturing the colors of the High Desert whether in Santa Fe (7000 ft) or in Arizona (3000 feet) south of Tucson. This was painted in Santa Fe with Chamisa in the foreground. Golden mean proportions. For inquiries, write firstname.lastname@example.org
