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!

Redway Beach Study / Part 1

The next two posts are "studies" of the popular local swimming hole. I call them studies , part I and II,  even though they are full size paintings, because they are preparatory paintings for a very long panoramic view of this dramatic location.
The Eel River runs along a sheer vertical cliff of geologically interesting stratified rock. Vegetation grows in the crevices and the river flows below, bringing much pleasure to locals young and old.
Part I is 11' x 29 1/2"
