Irvine Fall Color

On a recent painting trip to Irvine Park I felt like I was "greeted" with the beautiful fall color.  The trees
were just starting to lose their leaves and had turned to a brilliant gold in places.  It was a remarkably beautiful day with the exception of someone out walking their dog.  The dog took one look at me and started to hiss and growl.  We finally figured out that it was my painting umbrella that was all new to him and he definitely didn't like it!

Laguna Niguel Lake

This was my first trip to this lake. I had no idea what I had been missing! Absolutely lovely! Anyone living in the area that hasn't already visited would love it.
I painted on a small bluff and had the place to myself until 5 fishermen came along. Fortunately they went down the bluff some distance away so I had the peaceful quiet again. Hopefully the peacefulness that I felt in this lovely spot is translated into the painting.

Oil on Belgian Linen Canvas panel.
11 x 14 inches.
Unframed $275 or Framed $325 or call me at 714-271-1135. Shipping is free. SOLD

Pillars in Time

This painting is another image from my trips to the Mission in San Juan Capistrano.
The pillars are so interesting as they have so much texture between the plaster and the bricks and mud bricks. The bougainvillea twining around them adds such beauty.
