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–
My easel and a partially complete painting–
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–
