Festival Preview XVIII

Here is one of a few larger pieces I've done for this year's festival, 16 x 20 inches. It's an image of another of my favorite spots to paint, El Moro Cove, just south of Crystal Cove.
This one is painted at the foot of a monumental rock wall which is part of the coastal cliff that juts out to the sea ending at Abalone Point.

Festival Preview XVII

Well the big night is almost here. July 5, 2015 the Laguna Art Festival will host it's Artist and VIP Opening Night Party. I've not yet posted all my images, so will continue with that, but for today's post I'll just show a photo of my booth as it waits for the onslaught of art-lovers to crowd through the grounds come 6pm.

I look forward to seeing those of you who can make it for a visit this summer.

Festival Preview XV

I think I've posted all but 2 of the total paintings I did of the Newport Back Bay, so here are the last ones left with that theme.

The first one is a view from almost the end of Back Bay Drive looking back toward the ocean, and the second one is a scene very typical along the same drive of a cyclist one morning.

Festival Preview XIV

Wow, 2 weeks can go by quickly! So, back to the paintings that will be available this summer. Here is a scene I happened upon in O'Neill Park last year that stayed and stayed on my mind, and I knew I had to make a painting of this beautiful moment.

This is a sunset view of Little Corona Beach looking south from the bluff. A beautiful iconic spot for our area here in Orange County.

Festival Preview XII

Here is another morning view in Laguna this time looking south from Fisherman's Cove.
I love the feel of the rocks in shadow while the background is backlit and lost in the morning mist.

Festival Preview XI

Still staying at the Newport Back Bay, here are two pieces about the mood at the beginning and then the end of the day. The light in the morning on these limestone cliffs is amazing, and in the evening I love how the last glow of the sun reflects back from all the windows ringed round the cliffs...a sundown necklace to grace the end of day.

Still at Newport Back Bay, this time my favorite cliff to paint. There are so many angles and moods...I could paint this and nothing else.
