Vicki Asp has mostly been a plein air painter over the years. She has to hike into California's most stunning and beautiful places and set her easel up right there, and capture the majestic and colorful images of California onto her canvas and board paintings with primarily acrylic paints. And that she does, like few others can.....the beautiful, the colors, the emotion and the uniqueness of what is California. This is what you can add to your home or office!
Her work has become so well loved, due to her ability to capture the essence of what is California in so many minds and hearts of her collectors. Not only does she capture the essence of the place in her works to most who view them, but she accomplishes these paintings by applying loose, bold, colorful, impressionistic style brush strokes all over the canvas, which is a attribute of her brilliance as a painter.
She travels all over the state of California doing her plein air paintings of California's vineyards, pacific ocean coastlines, oak trees, oak landscapes, lakes and agriculture scenes, mountains, deserts and any and all of California's unique beauty. Typical, but not all inclusive subjects have and are; Lake Tahoe, Sierra Nevada mountains, Sacramento river, American river, California delta, napa valley and the overall wine country, Gold country, foothills, bay area, and many many other places.
She will also paint larger canvas works from her small plein air on location paintings at her home studio. We have many of her 30" x 40", 36" x 48" and larger works. Vicki is also available to meet with a client for a commission painting for a client who wishes for a unique Vicki Asp painting for their life enjoyment.

“There’s something about the feel of a place.
When you’re out there, you’re painting the spot, but you’re looking up, down, right, left-
the feeling comes through on the canvas. This world is such a beautiful place. I’m in awe every day.”
