All things 'art' are very good these days. This painting has been accepted into the 19th California Art Club Juried Exhibition at The Historic Blinn House in Pasadena: "Surf’s Up: Artists Capture the California Coast".
It will be on display there April 17 - August 11, 2010
This was painted on location on a paintout with the PA meetup group- a really nice group of painters. I had a lot of fun with this one. It's such a great feeling when a painting just comes together- not that it "painted itself", which I hear sometimes, but it did seem to work as I was out there. I was consciously focused on keeping the light and shadow values separate. It's something I've been working on a lot lately. I think it made for a stronger painting.
I'm definitely headed back to OB/Sunset Cliffs- I think it may be my lucky spot!
