Villa Montezuma, Victorian Mansion in San Diego
While I was painting this, two different neighbors offered their opinions about the ghosts. She said yes, there are ghosts in the mansion, he said no, never seen one in 10 years- you be the judge.
This was part of the “Great American Paint Out” with the Oil Painters of America. It’s always fun meeting other painters and today’s group paint was no exception.
In addition to the great old mansion, Sherman Heights where we met has beautiful city and bay views.
San Francisco Painting, Mission
Painted over breakfast in the Mission. With gray fog shrouding the skies overhead, everything was bleached and pale.
We agreed this building was a polluted seafoam color, and that it would be much better in the painting to change it to a nice, clean seafoam color.
Bougainvillea in Santa Barbara
On vacation in Santa Barbara, on foot. So we can stop at the bar if we want.
You never know when you’ll discover someplace beautiful just walking up the road.
Spanish House in San Diego
A vintage Spanish style home in my old neighborhood- Hillcrest. I love the way the trees in front hide the house from the street, like a secret.
Spanish Houses, San Diego
The strangely slumping house across the street. I painted this out my studio window.
South Park Craftsman House, San Diego
While I was working on this drawing at the laundromat, I overheard the following conversation:
3 year old boy: What’s that?
Father: It’s a flag. Can you say flag?
3 year old: Flag. I’m gonna f*** her like a pig!!!
– I just kept painting.
Fire Hydrant in University Heights
University Heights, full of great old architecture.
