I’d wanted to paint an enormous twisty old oak (or whatever) but it didn’t go right. I liked the stop sign.
We spent the weekend in the Santa Barbara wine country with new friends.
Painted on location in OB.
In a tree filled square off the beaten path. I’d like to live here.
The AirBNB in Venice. It was pretty nice.
I thought these frosting colors were especially luscious.
Painted on location on a beautiful San Diego day.
And then it started to rain.
The morning also featured high end donuts.
Since I grew up in a military family we moved around a lot. 3 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, 2 high schools around the US and in Japan. Monterey, CA was the 2nd place and that’s why I wanted to paint the landscape here.
