What I was dazzled with out west was the expansive views - seeing forever - noticing how color and tones define distance. It's a whole other learning curve for me. I tell you, if I lived in California, I'd be taking long drives all the time - out to nowheresville and back with my camera. It's inspiring.
This new painting is from southern California where the berry farms make the landscape look like patterned fabric. I felt a little Van Gogh-ish with the brush, lots of pleasure doing this piece.
