Capitola Sunset Capitola Sunset

Capitola Sunset

The serene seaside village of Capitola, just north of Monterey has become a favorite weekend retreat for the Kinkade family. Recently, I set up my easel under a beach umbrella and began to paint. The ancient wooden pier becomes the centerpiece of luminous ocean waters painted gold by the setting sun; tidal pools become silvery mirrors reflecting the glory of this Capitola Sunset. My...

The Wailing Wall, Jerusalem The Wailing Wall, Jerusalem

The Wailing Wall, Jerusalem

The Wailing Wall, Jerusalem expresses the devotion of the believers who come here to pray. Several formally dressed Orthodox Jewish men join with others in modern dress to cry out to their God. Some will press notes into the cracks; others will fold their messages into the shrubs that grow in the shade of these ancient stones. The impulse of the visitor is not...

Via Dolorosa Via Dolorosa

Via Dolorosa

In the Middle Ages, the Via Dolorosa was identified as the route along which Christ carried His cross; I've set my easel at the very spot commemorating where Christ received His crown of thorns. In addition to being a spiritual landmark for Christians, the Via Dolorosa is also a modern street in the Arab section of the old city. As I worked, small Arab...

Tower of David Tower of David

Tower of David

The Tower of David has become a recognized landmark, viewed by many as the symbol of Jerusalem. I think the view is, quite simply, one of the most dramatic and inspiring that I know. I was pleased to see that biblically significant plants – the dignified cypress and the broom plant with its luxurious yellow flowers – are abundant in this place. For a...

Sunrise, Sea of Galilee Sunrise, Sea of Galilee

Sunrise, Sea of Galilee

My wife and I spent the night at a kibbutz on the Sea of Galilee, near locations which were the very heart and soul of Jesus' ministry. I awoke early to capture the effect of sunrise on these holy waters. But I wanted Sunrise, Sea of Galilee to celebrate the grace of the fishing boats that work these waters today, as they did when...

San Francisco, The Presidio San Francisco, The Presidio

San Francisco, The Presidio

Plein air painting allows the spirit of place to literarily take hold of my brush. The Presidio is one of San Francisco’s oldest districts, dating from the Spanish occupation in 1776. The region, with its nearly five hundred historic buildings, splendid hiking trails, and spectacular natural vistas has been a part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in 1994. As I worked, it...

Mount Arbel Mount Arbel

Mount Arbel

I carried my paint and canvas up the windy heights of Mount Arbel to capture this dramatic view of the Sea of Galilee. Galilee is the heart of bible country; nearly a half-dozen of the small towns that figure prominently in the New Testament are visible (if barely) from these heights. My vantage point was none-too-secure, so I painted with a real sense of...

Lake Arrowhead Lake Arrowhead

Lake Arrowhead

I painted Lake Arrowhead on a brisk fall afternoon when the air was crystal clear and the sky a dazzling blue. The lake is a sapphire gem set among rugged hills; the deep blue-green of pine and spruce contrasts with the gold of scattered maples in their autumn glory The Lake Arrowhead Lodge is a classic mountain inn that is every bit as comfortable...

Jerusalem Sunset Jerusalem Sunset

Jerusalem Sunset

I set up my canvas on holy ground when I painted Jerusalem Sunset, then chased the rapidly setting sun so I could establish the effect of God’s presence in this sacred spot. Christ is known to have slept among the ancient trees of the Mount of Olives during the last week of His ministry. The Dome of the Rock, sacred to three religions, is...
