Last week I had the great fortune to paint at Rocky Point, just off hwy 1 in Big Sur, California. The weather was perfect - no wind, cool temperature and just enough overcast in the sky to let me see colors clearly without the need for an umbrella. (Which, btw, recently broke on me when the wind picked up my easel and sent everything flying, including my pallette and turps...)

Anyway, back to Rocky Point, where I firmly planted myself between car and hill and had the best seat in the house! Out of this session came 2 paintings that I am offering at auction, see links below. I hope you enjoy the paintings.

Happy Birthday America!

When the suns shines bright, and the tomatoes are plump, you know it's summertime! And sometimes there's nothing better to eat than a home grown tomato picked straight from the vine with an added dash of salt.

In celebration of our country's birthday, I am putting up for auction this original oil painting of a home grown tomato with a starting bid of .99!! - You - the bidder - will determine final price.

If this proves to be as fun as auctions can be, I'll list more small originals in the auction format.

Happy 4th everyone ~
