A slow day on Monday

Sometimes Monday is a very slow day in the studio. Just Melissa came and she had a project so I decided to paint.
I had some Trader Joe's daffodils, a blue bottle. And great natural light at the end of the afternoon. Will finish up tomorrow.  12" x12"

Poppy Season

I headed out to the Antelope Valley last week to look for Poppies. I found a few near the Poppy Reserve but nothing is in full bloom yet. There's a great dirt road that I've explored before that had gorgeous views across the valley. So I stopped and painted for a couple of hours. Lucky to have such pleasant weather. More to follow!

A little study for a larger painting

The winter light across the skyline is so stunning from the studio. I never get tired of looking at it and trying to figure out the right palette. I have a nice big canvas in mind ( 24" x 36") for the a larger painting but want to start with studies. Here's the first.
