Lovely Sunday Afternoon 

En Plein Air in Chatsworth, CA near Stoney Point

This Sunday was the perfect time to get back to painting! Between the busyness of life, my college artist son home for Spring break AND taking over my studio, I didn’t get any time during the week to work on my art. I really admire so many of the artists that are able to carve out time each day to paint. Well, at least today was my day and it was 70 degrees and  picture perfect.

The hills are so green and I was able to join a friend of mine in a quiet little area to capture some of the trees.

Highway 46 East

Paso Robles, CA is a wonderful city and is also amazing wine country to visit. Summerwood, Brecon and Ecluse are some of our favorites. We are blessed to have friends who own property up there, Klender Cellars, and they make a nice, bold Cabernet. The Klender’s are passionate about what they do and hard working, as is typical for those who want to make their own wine and share it with others. Having the opportunity to see a vineyard in different seasons and being a part of harvest is a great experience. They really love what they are doing! This painting of an approaching storm is a view from their property.

Acrylics on illustration board of my son and one of his favorite sports, wakeboarding.

My son served in the US Army, and for that commitment, my husband and I are so proud of him. All of our veterans and those who are currently serving deserve our respect and thank you’s for their protection and sacrifice. I was one thankful momma when my son came home from deployment!
