Recent on location field studies from my trip up the California
coast. I recommend this trip to anyone, but especially if you
paint or love to sketch it's spectacular. and if you bring
a partner you can stop along the way picnic at sights like
these and paint!
"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to
play in and pray in,
where nature may heal and give
strength to body and soul." John Muir
Back to the studio to work on enlarging some of my
San Francisco and Central Coast paintings!
Sometimes it's hard to get back into painting in the
studio after such a beautiful experience painting
outdoors, but it's something that must be done. I
will often surround myself with all the studies of
the area and meditate or visualize being there again.
Slowly the sights, smells and sounds drift back
and I feel i can begin to start my work. I want the
viewer to feel in my larger works what I felt
on the spot in my field studies.
