American River near Folsom 12x9
I've been doing these huge paintings since the weekend. I know, they're not really that bib. They just seem big to me. It is fun working a little larger. I like the combination of rock, water and foliage that this area near my house affords.
I am an artist living in Northern California. In 1993 I graduated from
U.C. Davis where I took classes from Wayne Thiebaud, Dave Hollowell and Roy DeForest. I currently teach art at Chana High School in Auburn California. On this blog I have posted 1000 paintings in as many days. Lately I have not been as strict with my painting schedule although I still update this blog regularly. I want to do some larger paintings that may take me more than a day to complete. Unless marked otherwise, these paintings are for sale. Please direct all purchase enquiries to Elliot Fouts Gallery. If you are unsure about the availability of a painting, please don’t hesitate to email me.
