Weed Pickin'

oil 8x8 inches Not for sale. For a closer look, click here. Mr. Richard Bumann graciously allowed me to take pictures of him while he weeded. Painted from my photo reference taken on a spring visit to historic Bumann Ranch, Encinitas, CA. Thank you to artist Rita Pacheco for inviting me to join her on this unique plein air opportunity.


  1. I just loved this painting. It is fresh and soft and loose. I am engaged with the figure because he is in the foreground, but seemingly unaware of me, the viewer. There is such a depth of field that it invites me to "wander around" in the painting. It's a beauty!

    1. Thank you, Mary Jo. I appreciate your comments so much!
