    After Harvest 12×16

    Unframed size: 12″ x 16″; framed size 18″ x 22″

     

    In the fall, the grape vines turn shades of rust and gold. This scene shows the vines blanketing the sloping hillsides, and I was attracted to the interwoven lines of vines and shrubs. It is a pleasure and an honor to be invited to special private properties to paint.” – mh

    Autumn Joy 12x16

    Autumn Joy 12×16 – SOLD

    Unframed size: 12″ x 16″; framed size 18″ x 22″

     

    “Ah, the vineyard in the fall. I felt joy because I had not been out painting with friends in some months because of my fall exhibit schedule. This day was specially warm and pleasant, as I stood among the vines feeling very blessed to be free to paint. The red barn made an attractive focal point for the painting, and I could see the distant hills, soft and blue to provide depth.” – mh

    Arana Gulch is a popular walking area for many locals. The park sits just above the Santa Cruz yacht harbor. Occasionally cattle are used to graze out invasive species. The park is framed by tall Eucalyptus trees in the distance. The gold grasses of late summer are a warm complement to the cool greens of the trees.” – mh

  • Hillside Vineyard, 9x12

    Hillside Vineyard 9×12

    Unframed size: 9″ x 12″; framed size 15″ x 18″

     

    “This painting represents a small study with the compositional design of radiating lines. The olive trees with their blue green leaves contained the vineyard. The farm house creates a distant focal point as the radiating vines lead you into the painting. I enjoyed the day with painting friends, as I worked on this piece in a vineyard in Correlitos, CA. Autumn color abounded on the pinot vines and their oranges complement the blue sky. Back in the studio, I used this painting as a guide to create a larger painting.” – mh

  • Horse Haven, 11x14, oil

    Horse Haven 11×14

    Unframed size 11″x14″, framed size 19″x22″

     

    “During theOur Bounty‘ event sponsored by Pajaro Valley Arts, I was invited to paint on a large ranch in the Pajaro Valley Hills. The golden meadows contrasted with the dark oaks, eucalyptus, and pines. The horses grazing in the meadow challenged me to put paint down quickly to represent their forms. It was a great day of painting in the countryside.” – mh

  • Horses in Autumn, 22x28, oil

    Horses in Autumn 22×28

    Unframed size: 22″ x 28″; framed size 23″ x 29″

     

    “On the back roads of New England one can find calming pastoral scenes.  One autumn day I spotted this scene, which included white horses with a red barn and a background of trees enflamed by Jack Frost. It inspired first a watercolor (White Horses) and later this larger oil painting. The early fall, especially October, is the best time to visit, when the color is extraordinary as the sugar maples, elms, and oaks prepare for winter.” – mh

    La Honda Ranch 9×12 – sold

    “There is an access to the lower end of La Honda Creek Preserve. The entrance is off highway 84, which comes down the mountains to the sea from Skyline Boulevard, arriving on Highway 1 a bit north of Pescadero road. My friend (and fellow artist) Sue and I explored the area and discovered a view of this pastoral scene. The hills were just turning from green to gold, and the cattle were grazing in the meadow near the barns. While we painted, several hikers came, watched us quietly for a bit, and then walked off to the trails nearby. It was well worth the long drive from my Soquel studio to enjoy and paint this scene.” – mh

    Lupine Field 18×24

    Unframed size: 18″ x 24″; framed size 24″ x 30″

     

    “In the spring, I go looking for wildflowers to paint. The blues and lavenders of the lupine always catch my eye. ”Lupine Field “ is a larger studio painting inspired by my earlier plein air painting “Lupine Find” (a 12×16 painting.) The lupine followed a path through a meadow framed by oak trees. A bit of fog shrouded the hilltops as the sun was breaking through.” – mh

  • Meadow Oak 11x14

    Meadow Oak 11×14

    Unframed size 11×14, framed size 17×20

     

    The large old oak trees and gold meadows of the central coast area draw me to their warmth and color. When the fog is in at the coast, I enjoy a journey inland to find the sun. The day I painted here, large hawks were cruising the air currents above. I used the bright orange-green to emphasis the warmth of the sun on the oak. – mh

  • Olives and Vines 12x16

    Olives and Vines 12×16

    Unframed size: 12″ x 16″; framed size 18″ x 22″

     

    In the fall, the grape vines turn shades of ochre and gold. This oil painting of a vineyard scene represents the compositional style of radiating lines with the farm home as a focal point in the distance. The vineyard was bordered by olive trees, which provided a contrast in color to the vines. It is a pleasure and a bit of an honor to be invited to new properties to paint.” – mh

    Pasture Pals 9×12

    Unframed size: 9″ x 12″; framed size 15″ x 18″

     

    “Santa Fe, the high road to Taos, Abiquiu! I have frequently traveled to northern New Mexico to paint. One morning, I woke early to find a group of horses grazing in a pasture behind our inn. The sky had an sense of impending rain. I grabbed my paints and quickly sketched in the scene. The willows had their fall colors which accented the palomino in the foreground. – mh

    Ranch Cottage 11×14

    Unframed size 11×14, framed size 17×20

     

    “This was the first of a series I painted at the Circle P Ranch in the Pajaro Valley. I was captivated by the afternoon light and shadows on the ranch cottage. The large tree which overhung the cottage served to frame the view. (The black walnut frame was made from a tree I harvested a few years ago from the Massachusetts farm where I grew up. See story here.)” – mh

  • Vineyard Shadows 18x24

    Vineyard Shadows 18×24

    Unframed size: 18″ x 24″; framed size 24″ x 30″

     

    “I am always intrigued by a scene that provides contrast in light and shadow. Above this California vineyard grow a row of oak trees with their large trunks and overhanging branches. The trees cast interesting pattern with their shadows on the warm ground plane. The sun was shining brightly on the distant vines, which were turning gold in autumn season. I painted the shadows a lavender/gray to complement the vineyard colors.” – mh
