Landscape Paintings

Sonoma, CA

The Sonoma Valley/Sonoma Mountain region is recognized as a landscape of supreme natural beauty and land use diversity. This narrow, 17-mile-long valley is framed by several mountain ranges and includes over 130,000 acres of wildlands, farms and ranches & vineyards…

Perfect for a landscape painter to chase the light.

Painting slows everything down, even if I finish a piece in a single sitting.

The painting medium hasn’t changed in hundreds of years. It’s the exact opposite of technology. One constantly evolves around you. The other makes you evolve around it.
