Sonoma Hills

"Sonoma Hills"
9" x 12" Pastel on Sandpaper

Whew...the holidays took their toll at my house...I just noticed that it has been about two weeks since I've picked up the pastels! It's been a busy time and lots of fun, but I'm excited to get back into the studio.

Last year I decided I would try something fun and number each of my paintings as I painted them...that lasted a few weeks, then I must have had a senior moment and lost track. Well, I'm going to try it again this year, so here is painting #1. It is from an image I took while vacationing in the wine country last summer. I think rolling hills and vineyards are tops on my list for subject matter, they are just so fun to paint.

Sonoma Hills is offered framed in a wide, gold plein air style frame with UV/non-glare museum glass. Ready to hang and enjoy. Buy it here and have it shipped, or I'll refund shipping if you would like to pick it up at my Pt. Loma/Liberty Station studio. $225 + $30 to ship anywhere in the continental US or Canada. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you had a wonderful holiday season!
