"Granite & Cedar" and "Cautious Duck" - SOLD


BUY NOW $90

This last weekend we went camping at Inks Lake, which is characterized by (besides the lake) a whole lot of granite, cactus, and trees. It is quite beautiful, especially in the spring. There is new grass everywhere there now, which is an intense shade of green and provided great color contrast with the rock and sky.

I am way ahead with my paintings so I am posting 2 today. The duck below is from a photo I took at Inks Lake on our last camping trip. He/she really wanted the food we were eating but was too polite to just come right out and ask.

Regarding images not coming through in the emails, you may need to click on something at the top of the email that says "click here to download pictures." Nothing has changed on my end, but suddenly a big number of you aren't able to see the images ... let me know if this works.
