La Playa Gallery Paintings

If you are local of La Jolla, or just like viewing paintings, make sure to stop by the La Playa Gallery to check out some of the paintings I have located there. Looking at them on the computer isn’t exactly the same, but you can get a small look at them below!

“Desert Night Music”

Oil 24″ x 30″ $1800 framed $1650 unframed

I have painted this scene of La Quinta out in the desert at night, several times. I like to see how my style changes and to add new elements to this favorite scene of a favorite place. In this adaptation, I made the sky and cosmos thick with gold and silvery stars, the milky way and nebula’s. The texture of the cactus in the foreground echoes the gold stars in the skies, bringing the heavens back home. See this one at my show at the Poway Performing Arts Center for the month of September.

“Quail Crossing” (above)

Oil 24″ x 30″ $1800 framed $1650 unframed

This painting takes place in the neighborhood of Lomas Sernas, a lovely community of homes at the base of Bernardo Mountain. We have a lot of quail in our area, and I like to watch them run across the paths. It’s always the same posturing: with the Dad standing guard, Mom frazzled and running fast trying to keep the chicks all moving along, and the brand new chicks tottering along. It was easy to imagine this family of quail living under the sage and scrub brush somewhere long the trails.

“Runaway Day”

Oil 30″ x 30″ $2100 Unframed $2250

The view is from the succulent garden I made that feels like it’s on top of the world. This winter has been so warm and beautiful, the contrast between our weather and the deep freeze everywhere else, made me think how every day in outhern California is a runaway day.
