This is my impression of a slot canyon in Utah's Arches National Park. It's a good-sized piece at 24" x 36." Oil on gallery-wrapped canvas (palette knife application).

Our Favorite Tree
Our Favorite Tree

This is based on a photograph I took at Portland's Japanese Gardens. To get a few more reference photos as I painted, I googled "Portland Japanese Garden Tree" and hundreds of photos of this exact tree popped up. Turns out it's a favorite of many other Portlanders, and for good reason. So photogenic. 36" x 30" in a "repurposed" frame I found in a second-hand store. Oil on canvas, both brush and palette knife application.

The colors of the rocks in Sedona can be startling - the reds up against the greens of the junipers. But if you look up sometimes it's even more breathtaking. A medium-sized piece at 18" x 24." Oil on gallery-wrapped canvas (palette knife application).

Pilot Butte is a cinder cone in the middle of Bend, Oregon that has been preserved as a park. If you hike to the top on a clear day, you can see a line-up of mountains marching north to south along the Cascade Range. Sometimes, late in summer, you can only see smoke in a hundred hues of yellow/orange/brown.
