Carmel Point Lobos California Marine Seascape Oil Painting – California Art Club Blinn House show

November 9th, 2009

“Gift from the Sea”
Pt. Lobos Tide Pool – Carmel
18 x 24 oil on canvas

Over the weekend I got the good news that this painting, Gift from the Sea, which I painted over the summer, has been juried into the California Art Club’s Blinn House show at the Women’s City Club of Pasadena. This is the first seascape that I’ve submitted to the biannual show (the others have been landscapes or portraits) and I am delighted and honored that it was chosen for this exhibit.

The theme of this show is Precious Gifts, and I have entitled this painting “Gift from the Sea” both as a tip of the hat to the Anne Morrow Lindbergh book, which I have enjoyed reading repeatedly over the years, and as a tribute to the bounty that the oceans provide, both in resources, recreation and natural beauty.

The reception will be Sunday, December 6, from 5 – 7 pm at the Historic Blinn House, 160 N. Oakland Ave., Pasadena, CA

The Carmel area holds special significance for us at the Winters household because it was one of the places that we went on our honeymoon. Whenever we return there it brings back wonderful memories. It’s a location that I will always enjoy painting and was certainly a popular location among the California impressionists, notably Guy Rose.

More art show news tomorrow, and I’ll be posting my plein air paintings from the Falkner Vineyard Invitational Plein Air paint out after that.

  2. Congratulations, Karen!!!

    It’s a beautiful painting and will look great at the Blinn House Show. I love the Carmel / Monterey area and there are so many beautiful places there to paint.. making it even more of a “gift”.

    My painting, “Magic Hour – Twilight’s Sweet Song” was juried in also, so we’ll get a chance to chat at the reception! It is such an honor, isn’t it?

    Wonderful work!!

  3. This is so beautiful, Karen and I agree with Jo, the light is splendid.
    Congrats to both you and Marian for being juried in, and good luck.

  4. I love the ocean and your painting fully picks up on the feel the ocean gives me. Great art.
