Sunny’s Donkey Pasture

13 Sep


16″ x 12″

The sunlight filtered through the foreground trees and 
glared onto the donkey pasture set in a beautiful little 
valley.  The donkeys wandered by to keep an eye on things
as I painted plein air.

Lighthouse Dunes

20 Aug


9″ x 12″

The Coquille lighthouse in Bandon, Oregon, was painted en 
plein air.  Soft pastels were a great medium for quickly 
capturing the colors and feel of the day.  Grassy dunes 
blocked some of the wind along the path leading to the 
lighthouse and the river beyond.   The west side of the 
lighthouse was lit up from the sun glinting off the ocean.
