Eucalyptus Fog - 5x7

I was driving home on the 192 on a completely gorgeous day, the setting sun was breaking through the fog and just making everything glow.  Wish I could have captured more of it, but with  no place to pull over and a fussing toddler in the back this is as good as it got :)

California Waves - 8x10

Summer has apparently arrived here in Carpinteria, and I love it! Can't get enough of these teal waves next to this golden sand.

Palms and Rooftops - 12x16

The building in this painting is such a random color, but I love it.  I've painted it several times and I love the pop of coral/orange it brings to each of my pieces. I hope they never change it.

Empty Beach Sunset - 6x12

Like I said in my last post, this afternoon light is killing me! Golds and blues and crisp mountain silhouettes.  It's been so warm lately, and the tater tot and I have been spending a lot of time at the beach...I never get tired of this view though...

Winter Colors, Carpinteria - 6x6

This was the view walking home with Lily in the stroller one day.  The afternoon light is just killing me lately, I want to paint everything! But this particular afternoon these trees were glowing and calling to me, especially contrasted with the blue of the sky.

California Blue and Gold - 8x10

I decided to change it up a bit for this one.  I wanted to use thicker paint and I also used a round brush that fought with me through the whole process. I'm happy with the result (and the thicker paint) but I think the round brush and I may be parting ways.

Carpinteria Mountains and Palms - 8x8

Another take on the scene from yesterday.  I wanted another go at those mountains, and who could resist that seagull perched up there?

California Winter by the Sea - 18x24

I was enjoying a beach afternoon with the little one the other day, I couldn't resist the light on our mountains or the palm trees set against this bright blue sky.
