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…
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.
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.
From April 28 – May 12, 2018 the Burbank Art Association is having its Spring Show at the Geo Gallery in Glendale (1545 Victory Blvd.)
I am honored to have my painting “Brace Canyon -Yellow” on display (an competing for a ribbon ?) It looks so fancy with a frame around it, and available for the bargain price of $75! ??
Sunny and warm at Point Dume in Malibu, California — a great day to paint with the Warrior Painters.
I found a picture of me on Google by user viixiivartcollective painting the 5th Street farmers market for the Los Angeles Plein Air Festival April 15th. Thanks! I didn’t get any good “in action” photos from the market.
I have some prints left over from the Art Festival last weekend. While they last ? I’ve bundled them up, all seven for a low price: $15
