Some of my paintings are below. The scenery was diverse, almost as diverse as the weather that went from windy and rainy to sunny and hot. The rain allowed me the opportunity to sleep in a little, then study the refelctions in the rain, while I stayed dry under an overhang. At Montana del Oro, I had just put my pastel painting away , got in the car and drove off when it poured ! Talk about timing. Luck was on my side.
By the end of the week I was exploring the northern coast as well as
some of the local wineries (trying to find where I could paint out of the wind) and looking for a little inspiration. Tasted some great wine at the Edna Valley Winery and painted a nice scene looking across the valley ( from inside my van) as the sun was descending. The light across the hills and on the barn was wonderful.
After that, I got to eat , relax and enjoy!
