Life in them thar hills

As evening moves on the half moon floats at 2 o'clock in a refreshingly clear, pale blue sky... a warm summer breeze drifts off the High Sierras while 2 bikers pass on opposite sides of the old highway, smiling and waving the friendly greeting bikers are know for in these regions ......a couple of horses munch on the grass in a neighbor's meadow......the eastern hills are glowing with the final rays as the sun sets .......  the day is drawing to a close ... I'm out pumping up and down the slight grades thinking this is a great way to end the day ... dang, life is good

worked at the easel for a little while today..... this is one that I worked on...... 9x12 oil on canvas pad .....high in the Sierras there are always outcroppings of rocks pushing to a new height... this was up near frog lake.

Unocchio's quote for the day

"One who returns to a place see it with new eyes. Although the place may have not changed, the viewer inevitably has. For the first time things invisible before become suddenly visible" ....... Bendigo Shafter


  1. Hey there,
    I dropped by your blog to see what's shakin'! By the looks of your last several entries, you've not been slowing down! ( we can rest when we're dead, right? )LOL You had me going with that little sports car! LOL At least maybe you can drive it once in a while!

  2. Great renderings my friend. You even beat me to Frog Lake. Keep up the good work.
