Spring Song of Malibu in California art club Exhibit at Weismann Museum , Pepperdine


 “Spring Song of Malibu” 18 x 24 watercolor

This is a celebration of the beautiful Santa Monica mountains which act as a backdrop to the Malibu Coast.

Because the rugged hills were never used for ranching , the native plants still burst into bloom in the spring and create a scene to paint that is as much bouquet as mountain. 

“On location in Malibu” exhibition at the Frederick Weismann Museum at Pepperdine University

Mars an Artistic Mission

 











Flyover Canyons of Mars 24 X 18 watercolor.

The California Art Club exhibit is part of the celebration of Perseverance landing on Mars .

This was inspired by the fact skies on Mars are gold because of all the dust in the air. This makes lovely hazy atmospheric conditions that are perfect for soft washes of watercolor.

Kelp Forest Glow

"Kelp Forest Glow" was a pleasure I lingered over painting. In February I visited the Scripps Aquarium and spent a long time watching the kelp forest.
This was a lovely world of light, turquoise and gold to spend time with during the stay at home time.
