Art From The Road

I completed another painting from our winter sojourn to the southwest. Art proved to be quite difficult due to the weather that prevented painting outdoors much of the winter. Our small trailer does not allow space for painting indoors. However, we have an ample supply of photographs to use for reference to paint pictures from this trip for years to come.

This one is my interpretation of a Falcon Lake yucca at sunset.

This one is still wet and on the easel, which you can see in the top of the frame. It is from a photo I took on Big Sur at sunset. The fog made the colors purple. These plants with their dried seeds stood out against the diffuse light. Is it a surprise that someone from Seattle finds pictures of sun good winter subjects?

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.
