Flint Canyon Trail – Daily Painting

June 19th, 2007

“Flint Canyon Trail” – 9 x 12 oil on canvasboard

Graduations and reunions are completed (joyfully) and we are catching up after all the partying and celebrating. Here are our son and daughter, who will be having her own MBA graduation next year.

So, it was time for me to get back to painting, and new watercolors, oils and pastels will follow soon. This painting represents a portion of the Flint Canyon Trail which is part of a large loop of trails that goes through La Canada, Flintridge, where we live. The trail is most beautiful in early morning and late afternoon light (this was about 6 pm.) The canvas was toned with burnt sienna underneath which adds an overall glow as bits of it peek through here and there.

  1. I love how the viewer in in shade and the sunlit area is ahead! What an uplifting painting.
    Congratulations to the graduate, thank you for sharing the wonderful photo.

  2. Interesting way to use your oils, with a misty feel to it. Like it.

  3. My fingers are so cold I can hardly key in the words! Congratulations to the new graduates. A great achievement. The picture is lovely, that undercoat of burnt sienna or ochre gives it a unity and glow.

  4. Congratulations to your son, Karen! You must be so proud. I love the painting – it has a nostalgic feel to it that I’m having difficulty describing – I wonder if that impression comes from the undercoat of burnt sienna…

  5. Karen, the undertones in this work wonderfully! It has a feeling of the drier time of summer and of stretching light. The soft shadowy house in the background is lovely too! As to your children, they look like
    children to be very proud of, congratulations!

  6. What an absolutely beautiful scene! Great work! Beautiful kids, too. I can see why you are so proud. Wish them all the success in the world.

  7. Karen, this is soothingly beautiful. I love the merest suggestion of house and home nestled in the woods. Great kid pic too. Congratulations to all.

  8. Spectacular Karen! I love this. You’ve captured the beauty of the scene, the light and done so by also showing off the best of oil painting technique and flavor too. Congratulations!

  9. You have very handsome children Karen – I think I ducked my MBA graduation on the grounds that I couldn’t go through that ridiculous hat thing again.
