A quintet from recent sketches that I make daily. Today it rained.

Finding something different on my walk was the goal and the fish market on Clement Street is rich with possibilities. My choice was a small inshore fish called a pampano which graciously posed for a couple of acrylic studies.

...straw men.

This is the first lay-in of one of four paintings in my studio depicting scenes of agricultural labor. This one is based upon a berry harvest forty miles south on the coast near Pescadero.

The Lone Jimador.

Early last Tuesday morning I installed the Lone Jimador painting at Copita Restaurant in Sausalito. The artwork is now finished and will seldom be alone at this popular tequileria. Im grateful to have had the opportunity to honor the blue agave harvest with my creative interpretation. I look forward to the possibility of exploring other harvests worldwide. But first I'm completing a series of large coastal harvests that will be completed by year end. Back to work!
