Artist Statement

This painting is about the vivid colors one can see on a sunny day in the Spring in Southern California. The early California landscape painters were mocked by East Coast critics for their use of bright colors. I take pleasure in pushing the brilliance of watercolors to the edge of gaudiness( and hopefully not all the way there) to express this glowing place.
