Another beautiful view. Coming from NC where I didn't enjoy painting our mountains, I've found an appreciation for the San Gabriel Mountains. I see them out my front window and watch the sun as it sets across them. Their colors range from gold to purple. Can't be bored with that. My last painting (see here) also had a view of the mountains, so don't be surprised to see them "slip" into a few more paintings. Enjoy.
Exactly 2 months ago today I arrived in California. It has taken me a little while to settle down at the easel. I've spent this time acclimating to my new home and all the different colors & scenes that are before me. I've always taught my students to spend time looking at their subject before blindly diving into their painting. I'm glad I took my own advise. So excited to see what direction my art will take over the next few years.
