Linden Avenue -Carpinteria Oil Painting - 12x16

carpinteria downtown carpinteria oil painting cradled panel linden avenue

We just got back from an amazing weekend in Mammoth, skiing in 50 degree weather and no Denver traffic is great!  It might be time to invest in my own ski boots though, my ankles are killing me.

Here's a painting I did before I left, and that's all I'm going to say about it because I'm excited to get back to work!

Santa Barbara Harbor XIII - 12x24

california daily painting cradled panel large oil painting santa barbara harbor

 This is the largest in my harbor series so far.  The sky turned out to be the most difficult part of the whole  piece.  It looks like it should be the most simple...and I think that was part of the problem, it was so calm while the actual harbor part was so busy.  I painted it three times before I was finally happy with it...I never do that!

Today I'm going to attempt to make a very simple version of a quilt...I have very limited sewing skills, but since I own  sewing machine I feel like I should use it.
