The River

My studio is a stone’s throw from the North Upper Truckee river, which meanders through a steep sided valley. We have the privilege of living with the creatures, rocks, plants and trees that populate this sacred place. Lately I’ve been drawing and painting outside between snowstorms, responding to changing light, newly downed trees, melting snow, windblown branches and falling pinecones.
