Spring on More Mesa

9×12″ oil on linen panel

I’ve been enjoying painting out at More Mesa lately. It is an exercise in mixing greens at this time of the year. The area is still not protected the way that Ellwood Preserve is. May it never be developed– I hope the community will be able to secure it in the future as a perpetual open space. The painting below is from the grove of trees on the horizon in the painting above.
