Pinecrest Lake

Last weekend we visited friends, Dennis and Beverly who live in the Sierra Foothills just up the hill from Sonora, CA. Pete, my bike riding buddy, his wife Malou, and my wife, Josie drove up for the weekend. Besides doing the regular Gold Country touristy stuff, on Sunday we drove up to Pinecrest Lake, close to the Dodge Ridge Ski resort. It was a beautiful day, and of course brought my paints. I ended up doing a couple small ones. Photos are below…

Below is a view of Pinecrest Lake. It is sometimes referred to as ‘Little Tahoe’…

Below are a couple quick snapshots on site of the two paintings I finished. Each one took about an hour…

Thanks Dennis for the photos!

  1. Hey Don —
    Looks like you guys enjoyed “Little Tahoe”! Isn’t it gorgeous up there? – wish we didn’t have other plans for Sunday, or we would have joined you! Did the others hike around the lake?

    We sure had a fun time with you all – thanks for coming up…and including us in the evenings’ plans. We had a great time!

    ps… I can’t believe how fast you paint! I’m going to have to watch you one of these days …
