A Quick Trip to Tahoe

I just returned from a short visit to Lake Tahoe. My primary mission was to deliver 27 paintings to the James Harold Gallery for my one-person show which starts this holiday weekend. Between that, and the 20 or so paintings they currently have on hand, it should be a pretty good show. The works are mainly of Yosemite and Lake Tahoe, both studio and plein air. Below is a shot of one of the premier paintings (and also the largest) in the show:

“The Red Boat” (Cave Rock) * 48×36

The painting was so well received, several patrons expressed interest in it before it was even hung!

Of course, I did paint, but the conditions were not completely ideal as a lot of smoke was blowing in from the California wildfires. At times you could not see the other side of the lake! I’ll include just a few shots from my 3 day visit–

From a painting session, Wednesday morning, it started as a beautiful day before the smoke started to roll in–


Here is a quick shot of the last painting on my easel, very near completion–

  1. David, congratulations on your show! i’m not surprised that The Red Boat was so well received. it’s gorgeous! Holly (p.s. thanks again for that wonderful demo you gave at the Menlo Art League earlier this year. it started me on a path to painting oils, and i love them!)
