My Fingerprint Painting

After many many hours, I am finally finished with my latest painting. I'm calling it "My Fingerprint" because that is what it is to me. I don't always name my paintings, but this one seemed to name itself as I was painting it. It just seems like a really cool fingerprint... one I would want to have as my own!

Anywho - on to the pics! The painting is also in my shop: click

First is a closeup:
And this one is of the entire painting:

From an Old Sketchbook

I scanned some of my artwork from a sketchbook a few years ago - when I actually owned a scanner! The scan did not do the colors any justice. I did this probably 5 or 6 years ago! It's so interesting to look back at all the artwork I have done over the years. I haven't done abstract work such as this in a little while... I think I'm going to break out the prismacolor pencils!

Oh deer!

I saw a cute little deer mommy and her babies. Found this trio walking the streets of N. Berkeley. Why oh why is that momma deer's tongue sticking out? I know, best photo it is not... but if you look closely, you can see her tongue sticking out the side of her mouth.
The rest of these pictures were taken in the Rose Garden in N. Berkeley. It's a great walk up from my apartment and the reward is seeing all the pretty houses, fantastic views and last but not least, the amazing beauty and aroma of the roses.

Cruisin 'round Cali

Recently I traveled a little past San Francisco and of course I took some pictures. I hope you enjoy them!

First I went to Briones Regional Park in the East Bay. It felt so wild there! Along the way we passed signs for Happy Valley Way and that is exactly what Briones turned out to be. A happy little valley, very wild and natural. The only thing I did not like was we had to drive past a PG&E electrical station. But, it was quickly passed and quickly forgotten.

We also drove to Daly City and wanted to check out Mussel Rock Beach.

Then it was off to Half Moon Bay!

On the trip back I took a few photos while we were driving. These are the only two that came out well!
