    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

    “I often plan to visit New England in October, when the leaves are in full glory. My sister lives on the outskirts of a busy college town. I’m able to find many pastoral painting opportunities in her neighborhood. This view is I’m looking north with Mt Holyoke behind me. The tractor trail leads you into the painting, where the horses and barns sit  bordered by vegetation gaining its fall colors.” – 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

    “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 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

    “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

    “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

    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

    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

    “This pastoral scene is located within a county park in inland California. After the first rains, the colors of the grasses change from gold to green. The red barn provides a nice complement to all the greens. I am always attracted to these peaceful scenes. I painted this as a class demo for my students in my Soquel studio.” – mh
