Curry Point November 21 x 21

Curry Point November Framed



I am showing a photo with me in it to show scale, this is a pretty large painting for plein watercolor.
Thank you to Juror Dale Laitenen and the Fallbrook Art Center for presenting this for the eight time.
Since this is going to a watermedia exhibit , it is framed in a traditional matted format.

Here is the exhibit information:

Signature American Watermedia Exhibition 2017, 8th Annual

Study from Santa Cruz, Winter Sky over Santa Cruz


Winter Sky over Santa Cruz
I did this the same trip as Cypress Hush, intending it to be a learning experience, winter light and clouds are not my forte. I like it as a plein air piece trying to get the light right with careful attention to value and color.

A Quieter side of California: "Cypress Hush"

Cypress Hush 9 x 14

This was painted during a quick trip last weekend to Santa Cruz, at Lighthouse State Beach in the fog, then rain. On trips like these, I like to push myself to try new subjects,  and new ways of seeing and painting. The challenge here was to be very careful of the values and the quietness of the colors without being dreary. I am happy with the mood  in this one, a far cry from the colorful brocade of Mount Diablo's slopes

"Looking North" and "Summit from Curry Point " in Exhibition Curated by Jean Stern for the LPAPA Signature Members.



Looking North 16 x 20


Summit from Curry Point 18 x 24

Signature Membership in the Laguna Plein air Painters Association is a challenge to achieve and I am happy to be a part of this organization with strong ties to the plein air tradition in California.

This is a curated exhibit of paintings from within the ranks of the Signature Members.
By my count 44 of the 60 + artists were chosen to exhibit.

Worth mentioning, this organization has close ties to the Irvine Museum Executive Director, Mr Jean Stern and he selected these works. There are 16 Women Artists included, a higher proportion than usual.

Cindy Baron, Brenda Bolyan, Cynthia Briain,
Hiu Lai Chong,Debra Joy Groesser, Carolyn Hesse Low,
Jane Hunt, Debra Huse, Lisa McDill, Rita Pacheco,
