This grove of aspens is in the eastern Sierra, the range John Muir called “the range of light”. It is a magical place, especially on those crisp fall days when the aspens are at their peak of color, the sky is blue and the air is full of the sound of the gentle rustling of the aspen leaves in the breeze. There has already been a dusting of snow but winter is still a little ways off and the days hold a core of warmth. This piece is acrylic on canvas and measures 24″x18. It is available for sale on UGallery. Here is the link to its page: http://www.ugallery.com/acrylic-painting-sierra-goldSierraGoldSSjoberg

Here is another watercolor landscape I did for a class demo. June Lake in the eastern Sierra  and I have some real history together and painting this just felt so familiar. This piece is watercolor on Arches paper and measures 8″x10″. SOLD

I did this watercolor as a demo for a watercolor landscape lesson and liked how it came out. It makes me want to head over to the eastern Sierra this fall and catch those gorgeous aspens. Bishop in late summer has a quiet beauty that is what I was after in this pastoral scene with the White Mountains in the background.

It’s watercolor on paper and measures 8″x10″.
