This is an original oil painting from a series that I have created by visiting and studying specific locations at Huntington Beach’s Shipley Nature Center.  At each location I create a series of pleinair paintings throughout the year, then I create the following year large paintings and charcoal drawings, pastel drawings and prints.  This location was the fourth of the series in the Nature Center.

Shipley Nature Center is dedicated to preserving the landscape as it was by only allowing indigenous plants to flourish there and though it is managed by volunteers, it still helps one feel the nature of the Southern California unblemished landscape.  It was a great experience for me to begin my understanding of the heart of Southern California natural landscapes.

My oil paintings are made from professional grade oil paints. I allow the brilliance of the colors to enhance the view and emotion of the work. The goal is to fully express the Southern California light and the visceral feeling during the previous pleinair study paintings done at the location.
