Fw: Ocean Elegance

A beautiful day -- a beautiful ocean.  This was inspired at Crystal Cove.  I am always intrigued with the crashing waves and love to attempt to capture their beauty.

This tiny cup was my Father's when he was little.  The inside is lined with a gold-like material so I'm not so sure how healthy that would be nowadays.  It has a little boy's angelic face painted on the other side, but I didn't want to get too fussy with the painting so opted to paint the plain side.

Clip Clop

Last fall we were in a little town in the gold country of Calif. named Murphy's.  The town is delightful and it's like stepping back in time.  The gentleman in the buggy waits in town for people that want a ride in his buggy.  His faithful dog sits on the seat beside him and after they have dropped someone off at a desired location they trot back into town to wait for another "fare".  Dog and horse are beautiful--well fed and groomed so they made quite a picture.

Gazebo View

This is a view from Heisler Park in Laguna Beach, CA of the gazebo that almost everyone visits if they are in Laguna.  Quite a few people have even gotten married there.   I was painting the scene when a young lady came along and seemed enchanted with the view.  I wasn't sure if she was waiting for someone or just enjoying the view and I'll never know as I got absorbed in painting and when I looked up she was gone.

Old Fashioned Ladies

This is a painting of some of my old-fashioned iris. A neighbor gave me some bulbs and it was a great surprise when they bloomed in November. My other iris plants only bloom in the spring, but these seem to bloom several times a year.

Cloisonne Jar

This little jar was purchased in China by mar parent-in-law back in the 1920's.  It is a little gem.  I've always enjoyed looking at it and so painting it was very rewarding.

Irvine Lake Boathouse

Irvine Lake in the summer is a bustle of activity.  In the winter it is so serene.  The most activity is a few ducks.  In another month the ducks will practically take over, but for now it is quiet.  I loved the placid feeling as I painted beside the water.  The one lone poplar tree that had not shed it leaves yet was a bright spark of color in an otherwise "green" landscape.  The few paddleboats (barely visible) were also accent colors.
