Dotti’s Carmel River Beach Rocks

Carmel River Beach Rocks
22″ x 15″ watercolor
From the Collection of
Barbara & Earl Jost Byron

Thanks to all of you for sharing this retrospective of the paintings of Dotti Rix McPherson. I have enjoyed posting more than 60 of her works over the past two years. Each painting brought back wonderful memories of my Mother’s adventurous spirit and the places she loved. You may have guessed that the last painting would be looking out over the rocks at the north end of the Carmel River Beach. This is where she spent many of the happiest hours of her life, shared with her family and her friends. And this is where her spirit will be for all eternity. Thank you again, for taking this journey with me, Dana


Welcome to DaneArt! I’m Dana Richards. I live and paint watercolors in the countryside near Stevenson’s Bridge in Solano County, California. Views of Mount Diablo, walnut orchards and farm scenes constantly inspire me. The birds, insects and animals along nearby Putah Creek and in my backyard pond provide additional sources of inspiration. Over the past year, I have been experimenting with Plein Aire painting with a group of other enthusiasts. My work has been shown locally at the Davis Art Center, the Pence Gallery and in other locations around Sacramento and Woodland. I can be reached at
