September Ranch

September Ranch


Title: September Ranch

Medium: Oil on Reclaimed Wood

Size: 10" x 10"

Notes: Part of a series of smaller works created in more of an impromptu impressionistic style. This series is an ongoing study of nature from many walks and hikes all around the Monterey Peninsula and is an effort to express the happy and peaceful feelings when I'm there. Each of the pieces are painted with my hands on recycled fence boards using non-toxic oils.

About this Piece: I have been intrigued by a little old ranch in Carmel Valley, with a picturesque red barn and ranch house, since I moved to the Central Coast many years ago. Surrounded by a grassy field with horses and wildflowers, the buildings sat boldly alone. The hillside, spotted with oaks and coyotes, still stands majestic beyond. This work is a dedication to the little barn and the quaint scene, although progress has since taken over.
