30 x 40 inches
I had an urge to do some larger landscapes, so this is one of them. It is a scene in the south of France, one of the many tree-lined country roads. Such roads are among my favorite subjects to paint, and among my favorite places to explore on road trips (I suppose those two are connected!)

10 x 8 inches
A white iris painted at a garden in Denver.
The plein-air season has begun! I had a great winter painting in the studio but now it's refreshing to paint outdoors again. It's a little extra bother, with all of the packing/unpacking and transport to the painting location...but it is such good practice and so enjoyable that it's worth it. I did a couple of iris studies on location, and this was my favorite.

20 x 16 inches
A scene in Lyon, France. In this view I was interested in the narrow slot at the bottom of this outdoor staircase between two old buildings. Lyon is built between and along 2 rivers and on one side goes up a steep bluff. This scene is at the bottom of one of the routes down the bluff.
