Carson Valley, Nevada Oil Painting

Carson Valley, at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range
oil on canvas
30" x 36"

The Carson Valley in Northern Nevada has the drama of light and shadow in all seasons. The Sierra Nevada range rises straight up from the valley floor. I liked the brightness of the cottonwood trees and desert Yaro up against the blue-purple mountains on this Spring day.

Sierra Nevadas, 24" x 30"
Cottonwoods in Nevada 2 SOLD, oil 22" x 28"
