Distant Bank, Carmel

We agreed we could never get tired of painting in Carmel and wish we were still there painting. This is from one of the late afternoon paintings looking back on a ledge of a cliff hillside . . . but don't ask me which direction I was facing!  8" x 10" oil on paper, showing the color of the treated paper.

Water Study

A little study of the rocks and water at the beach in Carmel, again such a special place to paint.  6" x 6" oil on board.
Here is my favorite photo from that day but not where I was painting, this is at Carmel River Lagoon & Wetlands Nature Preserve.  NFS

Painting in Carmel, CA

Painting in California was great fun and seeing 525 other painters at the Plein Air Convention was amazing indeed! My friend Susan Greaber from Baltimore and a new connection with Carol Mitchell was really fun as we painted every afternoon or evening after the events. The convention took place in Monterey but we ended up painting mostly in Carmel because it was protected from the wind and cold. I did not take enough warm clothes! Will try to post one painting each day with a photograph or two to tell the stories.
I can't find the correct photo for this first painting, but it was done in this general area of the Carmel beach. 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" oil on board, need to find frames for these painting!  SOLD

Kelly's Paintings

Two 8"x10" paintings for Kelly one as a wedding gift . . . thank you Kelly!
I have been sick with the flu for over a week, but now feeling better, I have been missing my painting days.
I can't believe I catch a plane tomorrow morning for California and will be away 12 days. I will be participating in the Plein Air Convention in Monterey with about 500 painters. Will be posting about it later on. Also visiting with my son in San Francisco and staying with my brother, a high school friend is also joining me . . . Should be a ton of FUN!
