                                               PALMS, CALIFORNIA
I recently returned from a month in Twentynine Palms, California, painting with 5 other women artists from my Northern California region.  We had an amazing time, immersing ourselves completely in our work, with none of the other usual jobs and responsibilities pulling at our focus and energy.  We talked, ate and dreamed art.  I painted en plein air for the month at the adobe where we stayed and other local desert regions, including Oasis of Mara, Cochella Valley Palm Preserve and Joshua Tree. By the end I had completed 30 paintings.  These images below are a few of the paintings.

An Exhibition of more than 150 paintings by the 6 artists (Regina Case, Joan Dunning, Linda Mitchell, Kathy O'Leary, Rachel Schlueter, Alicia Tredway), will be held at Eureka Studio Arts, at an Art's Alive Opening on Saturday, May 2, 6 - 9pm.
