Upper Sacramento River

Found twenty minutes to paint while passing though Dunsmuir on my way north to see the great American eclipse in Oregon. Forgot to bring ink so I’ll clean this up a bit later. Can’t complain, after six hours in the car with three boys just sitting by a river is bliss.

I used to go fishing on this stretch of the river with my dad, every year for opening day of trout season. Good times. I’ll be back to fish it in a few days with my boys on our way back to California. If all goes well I’ll be able to some more painting in as well.

Clan Fighters

Sorry for the inconvenience folks, but our boys must take a brief break from their normal fun loving adventures to kick the snot out of the clan.

The Millionaire

At the old miners camp, the wild eyed mountain man is preparing a feast to celebrate his new found wealth.

After all these years, I’ve finally found the mother-load. Boy howdy I’m a millionaire!

Rocky Shoal

A quick beach painting I made while my boys got ready for bed. Kids are jumping all over the place, time to eject. This is as far as I got.

Lake Sketch

Made this lake doodle to test ArtRage on my new iMac.  So much faster and responsive that my old powerbook.  Very happy with the graphic improvements.  Can’t wait to try it out on something more substantial.

Dick and Don find the old miner’s campsite. Will they be able to get their gold nugget back or will it be too late?
