During Sierra Art Trails this past weekend, we had three ladies walk into my living room display of prints. One of them looked at the first print by the door, a 30×40 inch print of this image, gasped, and then tears of emotion flowed from her eyes she was so inspired by the print. We […]

New Morning Light image – Buckeye, Foothills of the Sierra Nevada, California 2011

New photos from the coast
