About the small works sale

hello friends and collectors! Just a note here about this online small works sale. My work is mostly available in two wonderful galleries, but not all the smaller paintings end up there. I paint many more than I send to them, and I like to occasionally make some of these available to my friends and collectors without the added expense of framing. The small works sale pricing reflects that, and applies only to the paintings available here.

Shark Harbor Study

Santa Catalina Island, California. Looking down into the harbor. That color of the ocean. My signature is exceptionally nice on this one.

Dirt Road on the Wild Side

Santa Catalina Island, California. A dirt road curves away. Late afternoon sunlight slants across and lights up the hill in the distance. This was the day Jack drove me and Colin all over the wild side to paint. All the small ones from this day were fast and loose and got some later reworking

Foreground Shadow, Please

Vermilion Cliffs, northern Arizona. At sunset the cliffs light up like flames. I got started and was thinking, you know what would be great here is a foreground shadow. And just then the world turned enough that the cliffs behind me cast a racing shadow that zipped right up to the foot of the cliffs I was painting. Thank you, Nature. Block in the upper left is from the clamp used to hold the panel to the box. Has one of my most successful tiny signatures ever.

Stolen Morning

Painted in 2013 on my first visit to Laguna Beach. I had no red paint with me. Kept in the studio for a long time. The big mystery is this: some months ago it appeared in my mailbox. No envelope, not addressed to me, just in there with the mail. My house was broken into a few months before that, so my only guess is maybe they took it and then felt bad and returned it. Like I said, a mystery.
