Painting California from over here in Oklahoma

With travel out of the question, pandemically speaking, I’ve been occupying myself by making small oils of landscapes near to my heart but far from my vicinity. I’ve started with California, where I was born and raised. Specifically, northern CA, more specifically, Point Reyes, where I learned to be a birder. Here are a few recent pieces that take me back home.

“Chimney Rock Curve, Point Reyes” 14 x 11 oil on canvas panel. This painting is SOLD.

Okay, the last one isn’t Point Reyes, it’s south of Monterey at a beautiful place called Point Lobos. The last time I was there was iin 2015. The last time I was in Point Reyes was 2013. I yearn to go back, and of course I will. Hopefully sooner than later.

Thanks for looking. These are all available for sale, and I’m happy to talk with you about purchasing any of these works. You can contact me at debbykaspari (at) Thanks again!

    Gorgeous stuff, Debby! Thank you for sharing these. My folks now live further up the coast and these views are definitely hitting my heart as I haven’t gotten to drive up for a visit since before quarantimes. Nice to have a virtual journey!

    So glad to see you are back showing your beautiful paintings. I do love your birds. I was born and raised in Oklahoma. Job transfer I moved to Texas retired then got old and moved to Charlotte NC to live with my oldest daughter. I want to go back to some of my favorite countries, but sadly no traveling now, however I have photos to look at and enjoy a life I use to have. Marie

      Marie, greetings from Oklahoma, and I hear good things about Charlotte. We all have a lot of traveling to do yet. Wishing you good health and good times to come.

    I love Pt. Reyes and Pt. Reyes Station- the Bovine Bakery, Johnson’s Oyster Farm, birding the cypress trees in the fall at the cattle ranches along the way out to the point. What a great place that must have been to live!
