Studies from Tanabe

Riverbed Study at Kawayuu
It turned out to be a beautiful Saturday for our second visit to the onsen on the river. This time of the year the river is dammed to create a larger soaking pool. We ventured with friends, Todd, Nick and Carolina. The day was wonderful. I took a few moments alone to sit in the sun and make a sketch for a later painting idea.

Study of Sawabe's Trees from the ride to work

This painting is from my recollection of the trees that seem to zoom by me on the hill going down from our apartment. I often look over to my right at a certain turn on the way down and see some great shapes, this is my attempt to capture them from memory.
