Photo of Laura taken by E.A. Autrey around 1949, flower garden and heart-shaped water puddle shot today in San Anselmo and on the sidewalk in front of a bar in Fairfax. The blue jay was digitally painted with a map of California awhile ago.
Most recent oil on canvas (20"x16") painted in Chester Arnold's class at the College of Marin. I combined a photo of Death Valley taken on a camping trip in 1982 with a recent photo of a great looking green truck in my neighborhood. Then I added some crows from the book "The American Crow and the Common Raven" by Lawrence Kilham and a sky from a painting by the phenomenal Caspar David Friedrich.
