These are three recent paintings. The first one is an acrylic, the last two are oils. The last one is a large format oil (47 x 24") done at the Whittel Marsh in Point Pinole. The pickleweed is barely noticeable. It was a nightmare to keep the easel stable in that wind. It fell twice in the sand, and this is after I had placed bags with rocks on the easel legs. The middle one was done at the Carquinez Strait Regional Park, but it is a view of the road that leads to Port Costa. This is a fairly small painting, 12 x 16" in size. The first is a view of the Parchester Marsh at Point Pinole, another windy location. You can see the Chevron refinery at Point Richmond in the background.
