Yosemite
oil on canvas
30x40
$2200

Being overwhelmed by such old time standards like this come easy to most. The whole Yosemite Valley stuns millions of people every year. I got a chance recently to paint the iconic place and it was as incredible as I had remembered. It was over a quarter of a century since my last visit as a kid and the first time since I began plein air painting a decade ago. One of the things I enjoyed as much as the scenery was the way in which the people attending the spectacular ongoing event were awestruck in pure amazement everywhere I looked. Its the kind of beauty that can pull out the nature lover in absolutely everyone.
