California Impressionist Landscape Painting – Eucalyptus scene – One Summer Morming

“One Summer Morning”
California landscape oil painting
11 x 14 oil on linen panel

Please join me this Saturday for the 2nd Montrose Artwalk of the year. I’ll have new paintings like this 11 x 14 oil, “One Summer Morning” as well as prints, cards and original oils and watercolors.

I’ll be at the same location as last year, in front of the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf at 3701 Honolulu Avenue at the corner of Ocean View. Park nearby on Honolulu or Ocean View or in one of the several free public lots.

If you see something here on the blog or on my website that you’d like to have a closer look at, drop me a note and let me know before Friday night and I’ll try to bring it along for your review (assuming it’s not on exhibit somewhere.)

After the Montrose show closes at 4, I’ll be off to the reception at Segil Fine Art in Monrovia, for their first annual works on paper show reception, 5-7 pm.

I recently joined the Southern California Plein Air Painters Association (SoCal PAPA) in time to participate in their biannual Newport Back Bay Show and Sale. Painting for SoCal Plein Air Painting Association’s Biannual Back Bay Show. I have two paintings juried into the competitive component of the show, and will be exhibiting about 20 Southern California landscape and seascape paintings at the show and sale July 24-25 at the Muth Center. I’ll be posting those paintings on the blog in a few days.

Even though a large part of the US has been cooking with high temperatures, in Southern California we’ve had unseasonably cool weather. Often early June is gray and cool (June gloom) but to have early spring type weather in early July is very strange. I’m not complaining, though – it makes it easier to paint outdoors and cuts down on the water and electric bills and makes it easier to do yard work, too.

I think today is going to be a doing errands and catching up sort of day

    I just found your blog, visited your website, and love your work! Happy to read that you joined the SoCal PAPA as we work with Fred Hope and other members that exhibit their work in fine art gallery headquartered in Laguna Beach. Based upon an artists level of acheivement, not talent, artists can show their fine art in either our student, emerging or professional art exhibits. Please take a look, and if you are interested you can submit your application to our jury. Once again, I really enjoyed reading your blog and looking at the work on your website!
