Oil on linen on panel, 6 x 6 inches -- SOLD
I painted this landscape at Fish Through, north of Bishop, CA. It's a wildlife refuge, and there's hardly anybody out there, except for wild animals and domestic horses. There was hardly any shade either. So I deployed my parasol for painting in the middle of the dirt road to cover my easel. It was very hot day, to be honest. I was still wearing a long sleeve shirt and jeans, and sprayed insect repellent to avoid insect bite. But this was one of the scenes that I've been really interested in painting. I loved the light and shadow of the rabbitbrush in the morning light.
