I’ve been struggling with a more conceptual project for awhile and, as a result, not doing a lot of finished work. I decided to take a break do some paintings for the pure joy of painting. This is a landscape, near Altamont Orchards, that I drive through many times a week on my way home to Altamont. The light was so beautiful, I have to admit that I took a picture while driving. Luckily it’s a quiet road!
