Rising Tide, Bay Point


Like boaters and fishermen, painters sync their rhythms with the tide. On this September afternoon along the Bay Point shoreline glimmering sky reflections appeared as river waters slowly filled the channel. When I painted here at low tide a week earlier the scene was completely different -- and equally beautiful.

Castle Rock Trail

 


These rocky outcroppings are just a prelude to the huge, magnificent Castle Rock formations you'll see further up this trail in the Mt. Diablo foothills. It was a joy to paint this peaceful valley on a sun-drenched September afternoon.

Bay Point Shoreline

 


I loved the patterns of raggedy old pilings and muddy rivulets that appeared at low tide along this quiet fishing channel in Bay Point, California. The scene changed rapidly as the tide came in -- the ebb and flow of delta life!

Bay View Tondo

 


It was a magical day at Blake Garden with misty views of the East Bay shoreline and glimmers of the Golden Gate Bridge in the distance. Such a joy to paint there with friends!

Borges Ranch Improv

 


Started last Spring at Old Borges Ranch in the Mt. Diablo foothills. Finished -- and tweaked -- in my studio this week. I love letting my imagination come out to play!

Eckley Pier

 


It was so refreshing painting at the Carquinez shoreline with friends this weekend -- clear air and sunshine at last! My spirit is renewed.

Glen Cove Agaves

 


Glorious agaves ring the shoreline at Glen Cove in Vallejo, California. What a joy to paint there with friends on a sparkling summer day!
