Spring Morning

"Spring Morning"
6" X 6" Oil on Panel
Spring is here in the Santa Ynez valley and whatever can bloom is blooming! Had some time this weekend to get out and do a little hiking in the mountains. It was great to make a turn in the trail and see a small meadow blooming with poppies or lupine or other wildflowers. The air is cool and crisp in the mornings but warms in midday. What a great time to get out of the studio and enjoy the day.


  1. Another nice one, Ron! Wish I had that beautiful countryside to paint.

  2. Thanks Ralph....I've been to Texas and I'd say you have some pretty amazing places to paint there too. It's a hard choice between the lush trees and grasses up north and the dry scrub down south towards Laredo and Del Rio...great reference material there.
