Rubicon View

Since April 2020 I have posted on Facebook a painting each day as a brief diversion from the lockdowns and other bad news this year. Neglecting my weblog, I’ll post in the coming days some of my better posts.

“Rubicon View”, 28×22, oil on canvas

How many of you, when kids, used a rope to swing over your favorite swimming hole, creek, or lake? I stumbled upon an article about the ‘worlds biggest rope swing into water’, over Lake Tahoe. Upon watching the video, the place looked awfully familiar…I have painted there!! If not the exact spot, awfully close! It’s on the Rubicon Trail in DL Bliss Park, one of my favorite Tahoe trails. The trail winds above cliffs which plunge straight down into the deepest and bluest water of the Lake. You can see the rope swing here–

Today’s offering from the “Studio Choky”, is a painting from the Rubicon Trail—-

Here’s another painting of Tenaya Lake with a broader view from Olmstead point. It’s from Hwy 120 in the Yosemite high country, and one of my favorite views in the world.

This starts the 9th week of presenting paintings from the “Studio Custody” as a diversion from the virus news. BTW, many of the paintings I have posted are still available if any one is interested, just private message me.

Burney Falls, 30×48, acrylic on canvas

Water. I love water. Especially streams and waterfalls. When I was a kid, I used to build streams in the backyard with rocks, and even bought and mixed my own cement to make them. The first thing I put in my last home was a backyard stream, and intend on putting one in our new home we just moved to. Virtually every painting I do has water in some form.

Closing out 8 weeks of offering virus diversions from the “Studio Borstal”, is a waterfall in Northern California. I have only been there once, but produced this large painting from my visit. It’s an acrylic from the early 2000’s.

During this lockdown, I have ridden my Harley down the Big Sur Coastline a couple times for a break to get out of the house. Today’s offering from the “Studio Clink” is a view I drive by along this spectacular coastline in Garappata State Park. 

From the “Studio Can”

Since April 2020 I have posted on Facebook a painting each day as a brief diversion from the lockdowns and other bad news this year. Neglecting my weblog, I’ll post in the coming days some of my better posts.

Today’s offering from the “Studio Can” is from the wilds of Montana. It’s another older acrylic I did in the early 2000’s. This lake is about a mile’s hike from the road and a famous mountain pass. Anyone been there? Can anyone name the lake?
