Cheri and I spent the weekend rafting the South Fork of the American river. When I wasn't paddling like mad or getting drenched by the rapids (sometimes both at the same time) I was admiring the local landscape - very interesting mix of pines and oaks. I did some sketching along the river in the evening, but no painting. Now I'm trying to get things framed and ready for the show at Danville this coming weekend.
But a week ago, Kay invited me to come paint at her property near Jenner on the coast, and these three paintings were the result.
