Turquoise Victorian

"Turquoise Victorian", acrylic on wood, 8" x 6"
Just finished this new one in my "Architectural Gems" series, focusing on the many beautiful historic homes in Alameda, California.   I'll have this one in the Miniatures area at the Scene on the Strait coming up on August 8 in Martinez (unless it sells before then.)  The Scene on the Strait is always a fun, family-friendly event, with lots of great art to enjoy.  I hope to see you there!

"Sutter Creek Inn", acrylic on canvas, 12" x 12"

Painted this yesterday in Sutter Creek, a beautiful historic town in the heart California's Gold Country. The owner of the inn graciously allowed my friend Wendy Rogers and me to set up on her shady lawn to paint her lovely building and garden. A delightful day!
