Number twenty one of the thirty day painting challenge keeps me on the Dundee Hills. There are lovely viewpoints on the hill, one of which is a view of Mt Hood on a clear beautiful day. This is where this day’s challenge comes into play. Tour guides lead the way as you follow along on your horse through the vineyards.

On number twenty of the thirty day painting challenge and upon request, it took me to the Dundee Hills vineyards. My partner, Sarah, has the fortune to work as a wine tour guide on horseback through Equestrian Wine Tours with owner and old-time cowboy, Jake Price. He’s a hoot! He’s such a character and you’ll enjoy the conversations with him as much as the  wine tasting on the hill.

18 Sunrise over San Francisco

Painting #18 keeps me in the city I love, San Francisco. This sunrise was taken from my last trip to San Francisco on our way back to Oregon. We left early in the morning and were treated to a great view of the sun greeting the city. I love the Golden Gate Bridge leading the way to the city. Barely any fog covering and giving my eyes a wonderful gift to experience. The brisk cold morning was tolerable after this sunny greeting.

Here’s the time lapse video of me painting the magnificent sunrise:

Day 17, Willie Mays Gate at San Francisco Giants Park

Painting #17 takes me to San Francisco. I’m a big San Francisco Giants fan and with spring training in full swing, I wanted to paint a tribute piece to my favorite baseball team. What a great scene with the “Say Hey Kid” greeting fans to an evening game? The ballpark is beautiful any time of day and it’s majestic at night on a clear San Francisco summer evening.

I’d love to do another painting of this entrance, more in the style of the French Impressionist street scenes. I need a picture of wider angle heading towards the ballpark at the Willie Mays Gate. Anyone have a picture like that? Or want to send me a picture?

Here’s the fun time lapse video of me painting:

Vibrant Morning Abstract Mountainscape

I’ve been creating these mountainscapes on three twelve inch boards as triptychs and this time I decided to paint them on one panel. I took a page from my friend, Hirofumi Glover,  and created a border for all three paintings in the panel. What resulted was an amazing painting. I love that the mountains are much thicker than the borders, which makes the painting quite dimensional and textural.
