"The House on the Beach" (Ocean Boulevard) oils 12 x 16

My thanks to Richard Schmid for showing me the way in his "Alla Prima" book. I have read it many times over and still I'm finding something new ...

October Morning-Beacon Hill

Oil on wood panel 6x8.

need to be some where protected.
Email me if you are interested.
