Chili goers for a ride in the 38 Buick Full Gospel Church
Cover of The New Plein Air book by Phil Dynan
Campsite in the Calicos (Black Rock Desert, NV)
Paskenta Sheep

The assortment includes 6 notecards of my Plein Air paintings. They are from different spots and different times and for different reasons. In "Paskenta Sheep" you can see that the hills around Paskenta are a little different - bit steeper than normal hills. They are part of the Yolla Bolly Mountain Range, which actually doesn’t belong here in Northern California (the rest of the range migrated long, long ago).

The “Shady Rest Full Gospel Church” has its own story too - and it is printed on the back of the card.

“High Mountain Camp” is actually in the Calico Mountain Range which sits on the edge of the Black Rock Desert, Nevada. It is my favourite place to camp and to centre myself.

“La Fortuna Deli” is based on a drawing of an old railroad station near Napa...but the store is on the ranch where I live.

“Chili Goes for a Ride in the 38 Buick” is about my friend Lalo and his Dad driving away with Chilendra (”Chili”) in the car.

The Missionary” is the result of my travels to all of the California Missions and the impressions I brought back with me. I did the drawing near the coastal range of mountains in California.

I hope you enjoy these colourful notecards. I created them with love and joy in mind!
