I also wanted to share that 3 of my oil paintings are on display at the Orange County Fair. I also will have 3 pastel in an all pastel exhibit in September at the Santa Ana College Gallery in the Santora Building in Santa Ana. Both of these exhibits were juried and I am very happy my work was accepted.

3101 Lake Ave. 12"x 9" pastel
Took a ride down to Newport Beach to paint the canal behind my sister's house. Well, I looked at the water and all the boats docked and went into visual overwhelm. So I turned around and there was a red car. So as you can see the red car won out. While I was painting I had a few visitors. One of which knew about this old yellow house and the 100+ year old woman that owned the house and just died 2 weeks ago. It is a house with much needed work and will probably be rebuilt in the next few years by new owners. So I feel pretty good about this house that called out to me. I am sure its days are numbered. I love these old California simple box houses.
