A Weekend Well Spent

Thank you to all of you that stopped by the San Dieguito Art & Garden Mother's Day Tour this weekend and said hello.   We had a wonderful time and several paintings found new homes.

Batiquitos Eastward is heading back down to Off Track Gallery in Encinitas.   I usually paint looking toward the west when on this trail but on this cloudy day I turned and looked east towards La Costa.   Enjoy!

Painting Class

Painting drapery is an important lesson in class.   The trick I learned is keeping the darkest dark against the lightest lights to create your folds.

Sometimes it is harder than it sounds!

These three paintings were all about fabric, folds, darks and lights.

It was a lot of fun!
