Orchard Rhythms

"Orchard Rhythms", acrylic on canvas, 12" x 12"
I love painting in our local orchards when they spring into glorious bloom each year!  Here I've tweaked reality with joyous color and patterns inspired by a radiant spirit of growth and renewal.

Diablo from Deer Valley

"Diablo from Deer Valley", acrylic on canvas, 12" x 16"
Started this a couple of weeks ago, painting with friends on Deer Valley Road in Antioch, and finished it in my studio today.  I'm really happy with this one!  I feel like it captures the joy I was feeling as I painted this glorious mountain on a spectacular spring day.

Seko Ranch, Spring

"Seko Ranch, Spring", acrylic on canvas, 12" x 12"
I started this one last Sunday during our paint-out on Eureka Avenue in Brentwood, and finished it in my studio today.  Seko Ranch is so beautiful right now with all of the cherry trees in bloom. Can't wait to go back during cherry season (usually May) to buy their delicious fresh-picked cherries.  Seko has the best cherries around!
