Eaton Canyon Landscape Oil Painting – Eaton Canyon Springtime

January 23rd, 2009


Eaton Canyon Springtime
16 x 20 oil on canvas
SOLD to a collector from Pasadena


Interested in this painting? Please write.

This spring, be sure to mark your calendar to visit Eaton Canyon in Altadena when the wildflowers are in bloom. There has been enough rain that we should probably have a good show again.

Eaton Canyon is one of my favorite painting spots within an easy drive of my home. Sometimes if I see that there are interesting clouds in the sky I try to get over there to have a look or paint a little.

Yesterday I enjoyed visiting the LA Art Show, sponsored by FADA (Fine Art Dealers Association.) Several of the dealers featured paintings by Edgar Payne and William Wendt, both of whom are icons of California impressionism. If I had a spare 80 or 90 thousand dollars maybe I’d buy a small one. But since I don’t, I contented myself with gazing at them longingly, and making mental notes about the painting. At home, I’ve been reading Nature’s Temple, a catalog of Wendt’s work and Edgar Payne’s classic book on composition. It’s a good thing I enjoy being a perpetual student of art in all its manifestations. There is always something new to see and to learn from.

  1. Lot’s of very nice things happening in this one, and I want to stroll down that road.

  3. I’m also reading Payne’s book, rather slowly working my way through it on my commute when I’m not sketching. His observations are so astute and I find them so helpful. It’s great not to have to invent the wheel when someone else (like Payne and Carlson) have already analyzed it, and figured it all out for us. Of course knowing it and being able to apply it are two different things–for me anyway!

  4. Hi,

    I really like the chroma and the fog/clouds effect.
    Great work.

    Best regards,

    José
