I want this to be a record of my journey from architectural illustrator to fine arts painter, focusing on landscape and still life subjects. There is so much to learn, but this is more for the journey than the destination.

This oil painting is 5"x7" in size and was a study for a larger painting that is still waiting to be done. Soon, soon. It was done from a collective memory I have of a lot of old houses that stand near the San Bernardino mountains, and rock from the local river that goes to the sea through the famous Orange County, where my wife and I raised our six kids. Whoa, that's a lot of information. It's one of the few places that makes me want to slow down and just look around. One of the few places that isn't covered with concrete and asphalt.
