CALIFORNIA DREAMING: Portfolio of Recent Works

This being the first weekend of the new year there is no better time to recommit to those important items such as writing a blog. I cannot believe it was September when I last entered a blog post, but it was and 2013 is already a distant memory. So now the new year begins and I need to get back in the saddle of posting regularly. I seem to remember a recent post in which I claimed I was going to post twice a week...silly me. All I can say is I am committed to making this blog an enjoyable and informative read.

To kick off the new year I thought I would share several paintings I have created after inspirational trips to the California Coast. Two trips were to Monterrey Peninsula and the Carmel/Big Sur areas. Another trip was to San Francisco/Wine Country areas. Enjoy.

These are wonderful pieces, Rusty! I particularly like the way you handle the atmosphere over the distant backgrounds in "Coastal Glare", "Wine Country Farm" and "Poppies". Do you use a glaze over your initial colour or do you work without an under painting? You achieve a wonderful depth in the painting.
