Baja Morning

Here is another larger sized painting that I did the last painting day we had in Baja. We stayed near Agua Caliente which lies south of Ensenada right where a point of land - Punta Banda - extends west into the pacific containing and creating somewhat the Bahia Todos Los Santos, (or the bay which Ensenada overlooks). A striking part of the geography here is a long spit of land creating a tidal estuary, fully 5 miles long and affording beautiful wetlands effects as the tide ebbs and flows. We arrived about 8:30 am just as the tide was beginning to flow back in. This is a view I painted looking almost due East, with the beautiful green hillsides of the point backlit by the morning sun.

  1. Judith, I'm just stopping by to say Hello and to tell you I just love your work! Your dad found me on FaceBook (a link from a mutual artist friend) and wrote me a message and he told me about you. I am originally from Upstate NY. He and I share a love of the Adirondacks Mountains. Well, take care! Beautiful work!! Paula Ann Ford
