"Spring Oak"
6"x6" Oil on panel
Spring has arrived here in the valley. In a drive the other day down to Santa Barbara I spotted the California poppies and lupine along the road and beginning to grow up the slopes. With all of the rains we had this winter this should be a great spring. Around her you have to enjoy it while it lasts because soon the summer will turn the hills nice and brown. Warm ochres are the norm here in summer and I love it!


  1. So much in such a small painting :) Love this, Ron!

  2. Love the warmth of this and the strong diagonal composition. Its beautiful, Ron
