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.

Three Strawberries - 6x6

First post of the new year! 

Snatched these three ripe berries before my toddler ate them all (and by "ate" I mean she took one bite out of each before declaring "all done").

November Beach Day - 8x10

Can't beat this view.  Love this empty beach almost as much as my toddler does.
