Each summer I teach in Tuolumne Meadows and this piece was done at the Dana Fork of the Tuolumne River as a little demo for my class.  My heart rests easy in the High Sierra mountains.  This painting is a good memory of a great times here.

Completed this en plein air on Friday in Yosemite Valley - 24x30" oil on linen.  The day was warm, full of fall color and beautiful light, and I felt the same -- lite, warm, and happy.  Love painting in the fall!  I was working this piece at Arch Rock Entrance along Highway 140.

This is an acrylic painting done in Cook's Meadow looking toward Sentinel Fall in the distance.  I loved the way the fall came in curves to meet the Cow Parsnips in the meadow.  I'm interested in patterns and design in my work.  Have a great weekend!

I call it "Bordeaux Evening" and it's been worked on for two years now.  This is the latest version but not sure it will ever be done.  It's a "biggie" at 30 x 40", an oil on canvas.  I love working on a piece for a long time, taking it slow, thinking things through.  It's been a great week with some solid sales and lots of painting.  Off to the studio.

In the 1940's along "the row" in Yosemite Valley lives this Eastern pink dogwood, planted by a former resident.  They are NOT native to Yosemite, but a treat to see blooming in the spring.

I love painting big mountains the best.  I love geology and the way rocks were formed on the earth and I love color, so this is my life work.  I am painting a lot of spring color right now, but soon when the high roads open in Yosemite, I'll be back to painting rocks as I know them.  Happy Easter everyone!                        www.pennyotwell.com

Story - when I first came to Yosemite in early '60's I was invited to the Round House in the Indian Garden for a special all-night dance by the local Native people who lived here.  I'll never forget it, and this painting keeps my memory alive.  Drumming, dancing, full costumes, and drifting in and out of sleep, getting hassled by "coyote," all followed by a wonderful feast.  And a bear!  This rich memory is alive in this personal piece which is 36"x36", acrylic/c.  Wanted to share.

Yosemite Renaissance XXIX awarded my ink drawing, "Douglas Fir Grove" one of the cash awards at the opening ceremony last Friday in Yosemite Valley.  I am pleased because I continue to draw -- and there will be a new series on Yosemite Valley this summer presented as finished pieces.  Beneath most of my oil paintings,  a similar drawing is constructed before the paint is put down.   Drawing is the essence of a place.

This is a plein aire painting done in Leidig Meadow in Yosemite Valley Feb. 20.  The day started out quite warm, but then the wind came up and tossed this 24"x36" linen canvas off the easel several times, once upside down!  But I persisted.  Tweaked some in the studio.  The cottonwoods along the river looked pink-gray with pine forest behind them.  Turned cold after that, but I'm grateful because it's still February.  No snow.  Dry California expects storms mid-week, but they are so late.

Winter Morning
I did this painting some years ago at Mono Lake in the Eastern Sierra.  This is my "heart" place, this dry high desert landscape filled with sagebrush, incredible sunrises and sunsets, and dramatic steep canyons to hike in.  I've been walking here for 55 years.  I will be teaching outdoor watercolor for The Mono Lake Committee in Lee Vining this August.  Just a little winter morning dream of the eastside today. . . Happy Valentines Day Everyone.

This past fall I taught a watercolor class in Wawona at the beautiful old Wawona Hotel.  We painted and gathered for three days and the  fall color was outstanding!  This coming Friday, our Yosemite Valley community gathers for an annual bazaar and I bring lots of these watercolors to sell.  Everyone is welcome!  It's finally cold and snowy in Yosemite - winter has begun!

I was invited for lunch at Anne & Ralph's and meeting some new friends on a lovely fall day.  I came to paint their persimmon tree which had so much fruit it could barely stand.  My interpretation here was completed en plein air near their ceramic studio, 30x24", oil/linen.  Of course, they gave me a lot of these persimmons.  I've eaten one a day!  Love 'em.  Happy Thanksgiving!

This painting has been hanging out in the studio for well over a month and it is still not done.  It is full of energy.  It's busting to get out, but not yet.  Having bouts of vertigo so I paint a little, vertigo a little, rest, and then repeat.  It started as a demo for Open Studio  and has gone through a lot of evolution.  When I'm done with this Big Vertigo Interruption, it will go into the world.  Fascinating experience!

I taught a watercolor class in Wawona this week and was so happy to see the students work on the last day!  They loosened up, used large brushes, and used minimal strokes for expressive and fun results.  I love teaching and am back in love with Wawona in the fall!
