Older Painting

 These are four Oil Paintings I did of the California Pepper tree on our neighbors property but at the bottom of our property.  This is what it looks like during the hot dry California summers.  The second painting below is what it looks like in spring during the spring rains.  The orange is the California poppies and other spring flowers that come back year after year.
 This 32" x 32" Pepper Tree Oil painting on canvas is what the bottom of the property looks like when a cold mist enshrouds the pepper tree, and you can barely see details as you look over the land.
 This painting below is what the California Pepper Tree looks like when the late raking sun lights up the pepper tree, and the pink bougainvillea  just beyond, and it looks like the tree is aflame.  These are paintings I did a couple of years ago, but there are still areas on our property I want to draw and paint.
I have painted the above image twice, and would do it again because the old pepper tree (even though the neighbors trimmed it back severely) always has a different look at different times of day.

Next I will put up a few more paintings that were done a while ago, but still hold their appeal.

 The above are oil portraits of People I know, and painted from my own photographs.  The Images below are done in Adobe Illustrator and were done for the fun of it.  I like to try out new mediums...I love the computer, and drawing with a wacom tablet is great deal of fun.

I hope you enjoy today's offerings, and I look forward to posting here again soon.  Write when I get work, and if you have work and a paying job congratulations.  Write when you get work too.  Have a good day and good art.
