The Inbetween -sold

oil 12x9 inches click for purchase information and zoom feature Last Monday friends and I painted on Balboa Island. I have admired this space between houses for several years, and finally it was time to paint it. The bright yellow catches your eye first, but as you look, you notice the reflected color onto the blue house is quite dramatic. The telephone poles add a strong vertical element. My friend May and I painted together the whole day. We had a nice seat right on the sea wall. Thanks to my friend Mary Jo for the pictures. She stood behind us on a dock...a nice vantage point. By the way, all the verticals in the painting are straight, although some appear curved here, due to the "fish eye" effect from my camera.


  1. This is a lovely painting. I too like capturing unusual spaces. Sounded like a good day painting with a friend, bliss :)

  2. Love it. Great composition and light, and the touch of red sets it all off perfectly.

  3. This is a really great composition.
