The laguna....again!

I love to paint the laguna! I am always astonished by the variety of color found there; it is different each & every time. I need to fix the sky holes in the trees, but the colors in this little painting make me very happy!

Slusser Road Barn

I've been meaning for some time to paint this barn. Among Sonoma County's many beautiful barns, this one has to be one of the most-photographed and most-painted. It is looking more rickety in real life than in my painting; I was beginning to worry it may fall down before I painted it!

Coastal Barn

This was painted on Highway 1 just south of Goat Rock Beach. I was attracted to the deep orange of the rusted roof in contrast to the blue sky.
