Studio Work

I just completed this painting. It is called North of Half Moon Bay and is in oil on canvasboard. It measures 10" x 20".

Prior to this I have been experimenting with small 8" x 10" paintings based on a peculiar and interesting relic – a bunker along Devil's Slide on Hwy. 1. I am seeing where these painted sketches lead me....

Here is a photo and my first version.

I turned the uninhabitable bunker into a glowing refuge,

then deconstructed a version (unfinished image) at the right.

More to come... Keep posted!
