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.

more from the Eastern Sierras

This is a painting that I started last summer on site at the property in the Eastern Sierras.
I didn't finish it because I didn't have the scenery right in front of me but finally accepted that I'd have to work from a photo and now it's 99% finished. I can't wait for summer.

The start of a new year

Yesterday was a cold gray day but so nice and cozy in the studio. We were supposed to go out to Echo Park but it was just too cold. This is 16" x 12. Will work more on it tomorrow.
