Mama And Baby Polar Bears

Two polar bears seem content in a far off land where it is very cold. It looks like they may have had a nice meal and could be ready for a long nap. Today, unlike in the past, bears do not have as many chunks of ice to float on. Without this ice they cannot reach their prey. Change in climate is the greatest risk to these beautiful animals.
Ink and watercolor. SOLD

Night Snow

Snow falls in a small town on a cold wintery night. It must be cold since no people are out enjoying a quiet walk. On nights like this it’s nice to be relaxing inside a nice warm home. Ink and watercolor.

Happy New Year

 My first painting of the year shows a quiet neighborhood at night during a winter snowfall. My painting also suggests “wishful thinking” on my part because we in northern California are not receiving rain or snow as we normally do. Typically, we would have had a decent amount of rain and the mountains would be packed with snow by now. Hopefully, the month of January will begin to bring us some precipitation. We need the snowpack so our lakes will fill up and be ready for the warm summer months. Enjoy my watercolor. I hope you have a happy and prosperous 2014.

Blue Mountains

This scene looks cold as winter appears to be near. The blue mountains are not covered with heavy snow yet. Snow has fallen already as shown in the foreground. River water looks cold and still. A snow storm could be here soon. Watercolor. SOLD

Cold Winter Sunset

This winter scene at sundown was painted in a workshop I took from David Lobenberg in December 2012. I feel the painting turned out well and it shows the cold of winter but also has enough color to make the painting more interesting. This painting is all watercolor except for the use of some conte crayon for the highlights. SOLD

Night Lights

This night scene somewhere over snow-covered mountains is highlighted by the aurora borealis which lights the sky. This quiet scene typifies a cold winter night that could be someplace like Canada. Wherever it is these lights make for a beautiful setting.

Snow At Sunset

As the sun lowers in the western sky, brilliant colors bounce off the snowy landscape and a lonely barn. The upcoming night will be cold because the skies have cleared which will allow the temperatures to lower. Luckily, we do not live where we get any snow. Scenes like this are only nice when you are toasty inside your home--and not having to drive somewhere. FOR SALE, 11" x 14" original, matted, $40, $5 shipping, use PayPal. Ink and watercolor.

Snow And Shadows

This peaceful snow scene shows long shadows in the early morning hours. Soon the shadows will disappear and the fresh snow will begin to melt. Our area of the country could use much more snow and rain so we can enjoy a real winter--and have plenty of water for the hot, dry days of summer. It was not my intention to urge Mother Nature to cooperate but she did. Days ago we received good valley rainfall but tons of new snow in the mountains. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

Snowball Trees

Snow Waters

The snow is melting and many streams like this are beginning to fill the reservoirs in California to store the water that is so badly needed in this state. There are more lakes and dams in this state than you can imagine. But we need more. Too much water ends up in the ocean UNUSED. We would dry up and blow away if we did not save the snow waters. Ink and watercolor.

The Chapel At Yosemite

This is the little chapel that sits on the floor in the valley at Yosemite. This sketch shows the chapel just after a snowstorm where a few people have ventured out into the calm that is felt after a nice snowfall. Ink and watercolor.

Mountain Slopes

These Sierra Nevada mountain 
slopes look very peaceful in this painting unlike how they are looking currently. As I post this image, the mountains are receiving very heavy snow with strong winds. We are receiving lots of rain with gusty winds on the valley floor. Winter is here!

Once the storms pass, we will be able to see the mountains as brilliant white patches above the greenery of the foothills--pretty to view and exciting for skiers. Watercolor.
