The New Goldmine
oil on canvas

It was my 7th trip to West Marin and I was at a loss as far as knowing where to paint.  Feeling that I exhausted my resources I needed a new angle from my favorite views of past years. During the MALT show I got a tip from a fellow painter and two days in a row I ventured up the private dirt road and over the hill to some vistas that blew me away. "Now this is a goldmine" I thought with a smile on my face. There were 360 degree views with about ten obvious paintings in sight that needed to be made. The greatest thing about it was its extreme proximity to the little town of Nicasio where the annual art show takes place.
