Since the fifth grade, Northern California has been my home, it is my favorite place in the world. My experience as a landscape painter comes out of my affection for this most special place.
The paintings in Sierra to the Sea are a culmination of many years of zigzagging the state, from the crest of the Sierra to the Pacific. I have chosen a multi medium way of depicting this varied landscape, employing watermedia, acrylics, and oils.
Although my theme remains constant my technical use of mediums are as diverse as is California. Expect scenes of Tahoe, Yosemite, and of course other Northern California locales. The images herein will show transitions from mountain to valley to coast, or whatever catches my eye in “Crossing California”. Expect the familiar but be prepared for surprises.
