Summer Travel and Oil Sketches

I'm a little behind, this post should have been in August! While on vacation in Idaho, I enjoyed having the opportunity to paint in my sister's new "art barn" at her ranch.
My sister Linda's wonderful art studio! Wish we had this kind of space here at home.
"Red with Garlic" 6"x8"
I had a fun time doing a variety of loose fruit studies.
"Plums on White Cloth" 6"x8"
"Mom's Peaches" 6"x8" - sold.
Sawtooth Valley,'s not hard to find inspiration! It's beautiful, peaceful and fills your soul.
My sister, Linda Lawler is a landscape oil painter, residing in Orange County and Idaho.  This summer she was invited to exhibit at the Redfish Lake Visitor Center.  Here are some of her beautiful paintings of the surrounding Sawtooth Valley.
