oil on canvas panel 12x9 inches
Tuesday Martha and I painted in Rancho Cucamonga at "Christmas House", built in 1904 and now a Bed & Breakfast Inn. I love old houses, but what attracted me most was the lavender blooms of the jacaranda trees against the blue-green house. The palm trees made it a California scene and a nice composition. I have been having trouble with my back but painted anyway. Funny how all my aches and pains disappear when I'm painting! I kept thinking..."Gee, I'm kinda hot..." When I got in my car I found out it was 99 degrees! I had a great time talking with Martha and painting, glad the backache or heat didn't keep me home.
