24×30″ Acrylic on Canvas– I hiked up San Ysidro Canyon last week to paint this prismatic pool. Yesterday in Cold Springs canyon my daughters found three California Newts in similar pools– so nice hiking up a canyon in the spring!
Acrylic on Canvas 12×12″ — A cool, cloudy afternoon at Loon Point. The clouds completely evaporated at the end, but I resisted changing to the warmer light. Looking forward to some overcast weather soon…
If you go down to check out I Madonarri this weekend, it is a short walk over to the Art Along the Creek show sponsored by SCAPE.
Here are a few new paintings. I haven’t used acrylics in a while, but I’m recognizing I might want to bring them out again when I want to work larger. (The quick drying of the casein limits the scale I can create.) Can you tell which painting is in the different media?
Cold Springs Trail Boulder 8×10″
Sands Beach 12×12″
Tucker’s Grove Trail 12×12″
9×20″ Casein on Panel
This was a commission for a good friend who works for Montecito Fire. This is a view of most of the area they are responsible for. I’m honored that it will hang in the station. Can you find the two tiny fire stations down in Montecito? (Hint: Look for the reddest roofs.)
Here is a photo of the view I as I saw it and the painting I made on an afternoon hiking with my family in Cold Springs Canyon last weekend. In most sections, the creek is dry still, but in this narrow spot there are several springs and the water is running. The whole hike is still beautiful nonetheless. I was happy to feel some raindrops today, if only a few.

I love the character of these houses on stilts in Montecito. I wonder what it would be like to live with the Pacific Ocean as your backyard. I am starting to put many of the new plein air paintings that I do on auction through Daily Paintworks. Most of my work is done in Casein on Archival Stonehenge paper mounted on wood panels. The link to my gallery is: http://www.dailypaintworks.com/artists/kevin-gleason-5553/artwork and I’ll post the link to specific pieces at the end of posts. Enjoy your weekend!
