I enjoy going to the local foothills in Orange County California to do my pleinair painting. The warm colors of the hill against the blue skies of SoCal are harmonious and complimentary. As you walk the trails you can see these trees that huddle together as partner and for protection. I was especially happy to catch a horse rider on the path that completed the vista.
I make my oil paintings are 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 express the Southern California light and the feeling of the day in which I painted it.
