Hill at Carmel Valley in 11th Best of Plein Air LPAPA Opening June 6th,6 to 9 pm

'Hill at Carmel Valley" 12 x 16 was JUST painted at the Carmel Art Festival, I entered it in this because there is a very tight turn around, you really have to enter things that are already framed in order to ship them immediately..
One thing  I am happy to see is the robust showing by watercolorists in this: Linda Gunn, Robin Rogers Cloud, Larry Cannon and Patti Clifton as well as fellow works on paper pastelist Clark Mitchell. The entire exhibt is online at
and runs until June 21st.
