It has always been my dream to paint the central California Coast. California has been my second home for over 30 years. I love the dramatic coastlines and the way the hills turn so many shades of green in the Spring. I also enjoy the way the beautiful vineyards carve out in the lines of the hillside.
I had recently been to the Gulf Coast of Florida and fell in love with the chain of Islands along the coastline. The white sand beaches are dazzling, the light is intense, and the water tropical! I found it fascinating how the water color changes so dramatically as the clouds move above.
Everywhere I travel, I am searching for that intriguing moment to capture on canvas.
