“Bright Hills” mini painting

\ “Bright Hills”, 2008, acrylic on paper, 5×5″ matted to 14×11″

While hiking in Topanga State Park (see “Topanga Mist”) I took a number of photos of the hills and the fog. Looking west toward the ocean, I could see the fog rolling in from the sea, filling the valleys like water flowing between the peaks. The closer bank of fog was backlit by the sun and seemed to glow as if lit from within. Less abstract than “Topanga Mist”, this painting is still a simple composition that allows my neo-Pointillism to really shine. I had a lot of fun with the wild colors in this one.

This painting is available matted $115, or matted and framed $145.

I'm an artist. I make paintings with dots.

I work in acrylic paint, in a couple of distinct styles: landscapes and abstracts.

Native to California, I've lived elsewhere and only recently returned to my home state. I now live in Los Angeles.

I mostly show my art in outdoor festivals in California. I also occasionally show my work in art galleries or open studio events. You can see an up-to-date list of upcoming shows on my website (click here).

I invite you to sign up to receive my free email newsletter, in which I list my upcoming shows and talk about my latest work. I send it irregularly, a few times a year.
