Mar 31, 2021 Light at the End of the Tunnel

Its springtime and as more of us receive our covid vaccines the brighter the future will be. Today is a beautiful day along the California Coast and I painted this morning at the harbor in Moss Landing. For the first time in over a year I went to lunch with 3 fellow painters on a deck overlooking the Elkhorn slough. My fish sandwich tasted especially great and I am pleased with todays Plein Air painting. I will post it soon.

For today I wanted to post a painting I did last Sunday afternoon with fellow painter Ellaine Goldstone. We both have signed up for the Open Studios Tour that will be held for 2 weeks around Monterey County in October. As a promotion for the Arts Habitat Monterey Artists Tour, artists were encouraged to drop off one painting Sunday at the Pacific Grove Art Center gallery for a show thru April. After the drop off we headed a few blocks to the shore and selected a safe location to paint. As sea otters and Scuba divers cavorted in the waves, we painted.

About Al Shamble

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.

    Wonderfully cheerful painting with an upbeat pallet! It goes well with your upbeat news of painting with friends once again.
