Copper Kettle / Study

Color! The richness and variety of the orange in the kettle, fabric and flowers are complimented by the blue green of the foliage. To my eye this is irresistible!

Mattole River Valley

This landscape looks eastwards towards Petrolia from a hill high above the Mattole River, close to where it flows into the Pacific. The river meanders through many sandbars before finally reaching the ocean. In this valley the air is fresh and the wind is strong. The riverbank is edged with large sloping grasslands and rugged wooded hills of alder, fir, tan oak, and maple. The world feels fresh here.
