I did this pleinair painting at the upper pond area of the Japanese Friendship Garden in San Diego. The Garden was beautiful this day. A Visitor came up and the harmony between the Visitor and the garden was profound.
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.
