Experimental Painting never posted before

This is a painting I did some time ago using a photo of Hermosa Beach as reference. I never did a painting like it before. I’m dusting it off because I am lining up some paintings to go in a Summer theme show at the local Macy’s. More on that later…

It was a color photo, but because of the weather and lighting it looked black and white photo.

‘Plane’ Air Painting in Paso Robles, California

I began searching for a place to paint, hopefully with some of the gorgeous farmland as a backdrop. I wandered down a strip of road flanked on both sides by an automotive swap meet and open fields. Capping off the swap meet in the middle of the road were parked two planes from the museum. I walked around and found a the angle I wanted and set up the easel. As I painted, many people came by to see what I was doing, and some even took photos! It was very breezy that day and I had to clamp down the canvas to keep it from flying away. I ended up with a sunburn and the painting posted here.

Now I see why many painters are inspired by the rolling hills and patches of farmland in Central California.

WIP painting en Plein Air at the Warbids Wings & Wheels Show

Work in process- painting en plein air in Paso Robles at the Warbids Wings & Wheels Show. Many great planes and classic cars were on display, I found a great angle to paint the rolling countryside of Paso Robles, California behind a British warplane. The weather was warm with a cool, constant wind that threatened to blow my canvas off the easel. I will post the final painting soon.

Finished Playa Del Rey Painting

This is the finished painting (for now?) of the waves at Playa Del Rey beach in California. I’ve learned that when things aren’t turning out the way you want, trust the process and just paint what you see as shapes and colors.

I watched a lot of waves just to catch one.

My painting wins a ribbon!

I was pleasantly surprised that my entry in the BAA Spring Show won a ribbon for second place in the landscape division. The painting is “Brace Canyon – Yellow.” I originally was going to enter a painting of my cat, but the BAA just had a show called “Feathers and Whiskers” so I figured maybe they had seen enough cats. This painting to me was always a good example of when the palette knife works the best. I should do more…
