Palm Springs Early Morning

Here is a painting I did in the studio from a photo I took just after dawn. The light changes so fast at that time, I really can't capture it on the spot...but I love that quality of light so much I had to try and get it.

Mission Viejo Country Club Hole #3

This is the final studio painting I did from the study of a couple of days ago. It will be presented at a silent auction next Wednesday at the Country Club.

Mission Viejo Country Club Hole #3 (study)

Last Monday I was invited by a fellow artist to paint on the golf course at the Mission Viejo Country Club. It was closed that day to golfers, so I and about 15 other artists had the run of the place. We each had our own golf cart, and despite the dark moody clouds and damp, cold temperature, I had a ball. The products of our efforts will be displayed early in May for a silent auction.
This is the study I did that day. A little 8 x 10. I can't wait to get back there for a sunny day!

Palm Springs Morning #2

Here is a painting I did the next morning. I got there even before the sun came up. It was wonderful to be up at that time...something I can't seem to manage at home. Having a partner who works a swing shift may have a small amount to do with that.

Palm Springs Morning

Whew, finally getting a chance to post something new. We were in Palm Springs last week. Joel was taking photo workshops and I was playing the tourist, but also managed a couple of paintings. Here is the first, painted very early in the morning before the wind and heat of later in the day. I'm planning to submit these two to an upcoming show in May, so they are not for sale now.
