Rainbow Bridge Roseville

This bridge is located in Roseville, California, heading into the "Old Roseville" district. I used black India ink and brush to draw this subject then I used watercolors to complete it. Drawing and painting loosely is a great change from my normal tight and detailed images. It is very stimulating and makes me produce an image with fewer lines. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

Golden Gate Bridge Two

This is my second attempt at painting the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco. On a recent trip to "The City", I went over the bridge for the first time since I was a child. Prepare for a treat when you get close to this magnificent structure. The ride over the bridge inspired me to paint it again. It was for sale at the art exhibit on the walls at Sutter hospital in Roseville. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

La Provence Restaurant

The La Provence restaurant is located in the northern part of the city of Roseville. It is an elegant place to dine in a superb location surrounded by huge oak trees. Each month I co-teach a four hour class at this location in a private room. It's an excellent venue.

Last summer I went out to this location to draw this beautiful building. It was very warm that day but luckily I was there in the early AM. Currently, this painting is hanging in our home. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

The 18th Hole

During an early morning paint out, I tried to capture the stillness of the 18th hole that two golfers had just reached on this warm summer morning. The sun was bright behind the trees casting nice shadows. This is the golf course at the Roseville Sun City adult community. Ink and watercolor.

Roseville Run/Walk

On October 10, I was with a fellow artist manning a booth at the Roseville, California H.O.T. Pink 5k Run/Walk in the historic old town area. From my vantage point, I took the time to sketch some of the action. It was a cool morning and all the runners and walkers were in high spirits. I began sketching this after the race began and continued intermittently until the race was over when most of the people cleared away. Not much detail but I drew what I could with people moving about. Ink and watercolor.

Similar But Different

These two images of the old Roseville, California
Tower theater are similar but different. I posted
the black and white version in 2007. I have since
added watercolor which leaves much more of
an impact with the viewer. Humans gravitate
towards color and if we are made to choose
between black and white or color, the color version
normally wins out.

Roseville Tower Theater

This old theater marquee still stands in Roseville. The facility is now used by local actors for plays and other events. I remember this building when I was little. At night, the bright lights made the downtown area beautifully exciting. The building seemed so huge, but it really is not. There was a Foster Freeze next to it and my Mom and Dad would treat us to root beer floats. Many of these beautiful marquees have gone by the wayside. I wish they were all renovated and still in use. This one will stand forever in my mind. Micron, Faber Castell "Shades of Gray".

567 Caged

An aging utility locomotive, with its old Southern Pacific colors and newer Union Pacific colors, sits idly on the sidetracks at the Union Pacific yard in Roseville, CA. This locomotive’s power days are now over and it is now used to shuttle cars around the yard. Much of the time it sits with its power caged awaiting its next job for the day. Note the yellow sign. Hard to believe these huge engines can be moved by remote control. Ink and watercolor, 11” x 14”.
