Stone Ruin, Round Valley

 



It was so interesting to discover the remains of this old stone cabin along the trail at Round Valley in Northern California. Roof, doors, windows and inhabitants are long gone and a tree is growing up through the floor. Vintage ranch buildings across the creek are still in use.

Welcome Home, Locke

 


Spent a delightful afternoon in Locke painting among the poppies and grapevines, enjoying the sounds of live music, poetry and friendly voices floating over from a community picnic. Love this town!

Almond Joy

 


Blooming almonds dance with Spring flowers in a quiet country garden. Started while painting en plein air with friends, finished in my colorful imagination (can you tell?)

Golden Morning, Sunol

 


Went back to Main Street in Sunol where the tracks come swooping into town. This time I turned my easel to include the classic old cafe and enjoyed the quiet glow of a Spring morning.

Tracks at Main, Sunol

 


Sunol is a small, vintage town tucked into scenic hill country near Pleasanton in Northern California. It's home to the historic Niles Canyon Railway and these old tracks cross Main Street right in the heart of town.

Spring Color, Locke

 


It was a delight to see Locke's pretty little neighborhood alive with blooming color this Spring. My palette did the happy dance!

Late Bloomers

 


The owner of this cherry orchard told me the trees are blooming about two weeks later than usual this year. Some things are worth the wait!
