Coal Oil Point 20 x 8″
One of my favorite views from one of my favorite trails. It was fun to see the college students out on their bikes enjoying late summer. In the course of this painting, the fog blew all the way in, turned everything misty and grey and then retreated on the reversing winds all the way out to sea.
I’m framing things up to get them ready for the show at the Santa Barbara Art Foundry. I’d love to see you swing by on Saturday from 4-6 pm. (Kids are welcome.) I spent a nice afternoon painting the first crossing on the San Ysidro creek trail a couple of days ago… Fun to paint on the tall format— reminds me of those cool vertical Asian landscapes.
Sunrise is my favorite time of day. We’ve been having some fog and mist lately and I was excited to see the first clear morning in a while today. Here is a painting of the San Marcos Foothills around 6:30.
Not that the fog can’t be nice, too. My dog, Julia and I went to Goleta Beach this week and painted this view. (She did the trees.)
I hope you are all enjoying your morning as well!
