I painted this piece on location at Mt. Diablo State Park. I loved this scene because the early morning light made the colors of the foothills very soft, yet the backlit tree in the front had high contract. The shadows were nearly back and highlights were nearly white. This piece is painted on archival gessobord

The day I walked into my first painting class changed the way I see the world. I love to study the shapes, colors, and light around me. I am a diligent student constantly trying to expand my understanding of different techniques in oil and watercolor. I often set up lessons for myself and don’t move for hours once I get started on a piece. Painting is my reward.
