Care Free

Life in Southern California weather makes it a good place to live if you enjoy getting out.  The temperatures make hiking an easy outing for my husband and I.   This is a place called Peter's Canyon that is not to far from home.  You would never know that housing surrounds this place.  Once in on the path, the cares of the day are long gone.
Care Free, pastel over watercolor on sanded Uart, 14 3/4x16 3/4

With Peter's Canyon right in my backyard, I may have to go there, you made it look so enticing. Beautiful Dori!

Beautiful scene and I love the touches of red tones coming through the green. It makes the painting so full of life.
