East from Laureles Grade

I've been bad about posting lately. It's not because I haven't been painting; I've been doing a good deal of that, and selling quite a few paintings too. School has kept me on my toes though, and so I just haven't had much time for logging on. Hope you'll forgive me and that you'll have a very merry Christmas.

Crows

I like crows. Always have. Lately I've been captivated by late-afternoon sunlight in the pines and Monterey cypress. I've been thinking a lot about how to capture the glow on the sunlit side of the trees, and how it deepens into purple shadow on the far side.
