I haven't painted many nocturnes, so this was extra fun. For those of you who know the area, I took this shot while walking toward the pier parking lot, standing on the corner by the drugstore. See the tree "on fire" in the distance? It's planted in the meridian way, way up the street, so it's a big one. I think it's a Norfolk Island Pine. I always look for that grand old tree when I go to Balboa. I love that tree and felt happy to put it in my painting.
OTHER NEWS: Associated Artists Of The Inland Empire's 50th Show is coming up September 5-7 at the Cultural Center, Victoria Gardens, Rancho Cucamonga. I'll be demonstrating all three days. Come on out if you can...beautiful venue, great variety of art, and over 350 works.
Soon we leave on an RV trip from SoCal to northern Oregon. I have a small backlog of paintings to share if the wifi's good. We're due for some R&R, but I do hope to paint and post along the way.
