The sun incandesces all the blossomings on the path to the sea. I love what springtime brings.
On my walk toward the ocean bluffs in Carpinteria, Calif., there was this beautiful eucalyptus swaying in the wind before me.
Hiking in the California mountains, I came to this valley gorge with the two trees which had to be painted.
Exploring the bluffs in Carpinteria, this pathway was very inviting. There was no second thought about it. I set up my easel to paint what was ahead of me.
In the Santa Ynez Valley, there are what seems to be countless vineyards that go on for miles. Travel back in time to where simple pleasures, open spaces, grassy fields, and warm sunny days are found.

It’s a windy day at Surfer’s Knoll in Ventura. It was a joy in expressing the windswept dunes and foliage blowing before me.
I created this piece from my imagination and influence from all my walks in nature. I enjoyed painting with my favorite color purple and using it so freely.
Inspired by my trips to Sedona over the years, I’ve finally painted it! It’s always a magical experience there for me.
