March 2018 Winter Painting in California

Three of my Plein Air painter friends joined me for a marvelous day at the coast. Our choice was Garrapata State Park , near Big Sur.  We were blessed with sunshine, painterly light, and no wind !  Here are two of my paintings from the day and a few photos of the scene.

I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. I have a minor in Visual Arts from UCSD where I received my BA in Biology. I am inspired by Nature and love hiking in California's Sierra Nevada and diving beneath the surface of the Pacific Ocean. I enjoy the interplay of painting Plein Air, being an outdoor photographer, and creating paintings in the studio.
