Morning on Metcalf Road

From April 2020, for a year, I 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. Some of these paintings are still available.

“Morning on Metcalf Road”, oil on panel, plein air

Metcalf Road winds it’s way in the hills south of San Jose. Close to my old home in the Evergreen area of San Jose, it was a favorite ride on my Harley if I just wanted to get away for a bit. Just a few miles from the sprawling Silicon Valley, it is totally rural with farmhouses, winding roads, and vistas of the California hills.

From the “studio tata ki te kokoru” is another plein air piece I did for the Los Gatos Art Festival in 2015, painted in the early morning along Metcalf visible in the foreground.
