California Landscape Oil Painting – Orange Grove – Santa Paula Art Museum Juried Show

August 9th, 2010

The Scent of Citrus
12 x 16 oil on linen panel
Citrus grove in Santa Paula, California

Accepted into the 3rd annual Art about Agriculture exhibition
Location: Santa Paula Art Museum, Santa Paula.

Artists reception: August 21, 4-6 pm

I painted this scene of a wonderful area along highway 126 – in the Santa Clara River Valley. This agriculturally rich area is probably what the San Fernando and other regional valleys were like a hundred years ago. But I’m just guessing at that. Avocados, citrus as well as row crops are abundant, and in the springtime the colors are rich. My objective in this painting was to capture the feeling of velvety green on the distant hills where the light broke through the clearing storm clouds.

  2. I like the way the light hits the hillsides in the background area.

    Congratulations again, Karen… The good things just keep coming!

  5. Karen, this is wonderful. I am such a sucker for color and this is amazing. Sorry I haven’t been around. Lovely to see this and the wedding is great, too.
