Come with me as I travel around northern California and Europe, capturing the beauty in oil and water color. I divide my time between my home in Sausalito, California and my 1925 Dutch barge, exploring the rivers and canals of France.

The beauty of these wonderful places is sometimes just plain overwhelming. I've tried with my brushes to grab those moments in time and those feelings of incredible beauty in oil and water color.

I hope you enjoy my paintings. If you would like to own one, please contact me for prices on either original paintings or selected gyclee prints.

The stories are just for fun.

Hope you enjoy them and thanks for looking,

Cris Hammond
