Montage Retreat

This was done as a study for a larger painting.  It definitely captured the atmosphere of the day I was there painting.  This area is definitely one of the most beautiful beaches in Southern Calif.

As you may have noticed by now, I love animals!! I know I'm not alone in that category, so I enjoy painting them so others can enjoy my vision of them. These two cats belonged to my son and got along (most of the time) very well. When they were looking out the window I had to wonder if they were spotting birds they would like to get after (Oh, no)or just enjoying the beauty of the day and the warm sun.

Eucalyptus Trees

These trees grow out in front of my large studio window. I love their graceful, long lines and the many varieties of greens within their leaves. However, they are very messy trees so if it was up to my husband they would be gone. There is also some aloe-type cactus that grows at the foot of the trees and when the trees shed they get all tangled up in the cactus (which has very sharp points) so it is difficult to keep it cleaned out. We live in a somewhat rural community so the white fence in the background is ranch fencing.

This was painted while standing in the middle of the riverbed in Irvine Park.  The climb down was fairly steep and a friend (much younger) helped me down and back up with all my painting gear--I felt quite daring!!  Anyway, it was a beautiful view and I was grateful for the help.  This riverbed is dry most of the time.  I've only heard one person say they'd seen it at one time with a lot of water in it.

Tulip Time

These tulips were beautiful when I walked thru the front door of our local nursery.  They are one of my favorite flowers, but I can't grow them because we have too many moles and gophers here in rural Orange County, CA.  Guess I'll just have to be satisfied with paintings of them!
