Two new Mount Diablo Paintings
Just Below Junction 21 x 21
Summit From Curry Point November 21 x 21
I've had these in the studio for months.
Started them both last fall trying to paint the beauty of the dusty colors of the drought.
The reds of the California holly were fun to see in the chaparral. In fact the native plants didn't look that different from the usual fall colors, but the grasses were very dried out.
These were both painted on Southgate Road at Curry Point and just below the long straight hill near Junction.
I can tell you there were a lot of hikers on the Summit trail which was good to see, but far too many cyclists speeding down that hill.
