CALIFORNIA TRAVELS


I'm traveling this month, painting and visiting connections I've made through my painting, and art blogs. This is a scene along one of my favorite California highways, Pacheco Pass (HWY 152). Its Spring, and there are all shades of green and wildflowers everywhere. I painted this piece on location, in the late afternoon as the sun was lowering. It created a beautiful violet light, setting off the chartruese of the newly leafed out oaks and new grasses. Sold

I'll bet the colors within the darks are gorgeous in the real painting.
