Beth Ann -a plein air painting from Morro Bay


Beth Ann   oil 11x14
Purchase info here.

In August of 2021 my husband and I camped in Morro Bay.  The RV Campground graciously gave us a spot at the last minute when all of the state campgrounds closed abruptly and we lost our reservation.  What a blessing this turned out to be!  We were within walking distance of Morro Rock and the boats docked in the bay.  A tiny hunk of Moro Rock is visible in the upper right corner.  This is one of three plein air pieces still available from that trip.  

Below is another plein air piece I did on a trip to Idaho in March.  I love painting old structures, and the  junk on the outside was especially enticing.  I have family that lives in Kuna on this old family farm property.  This is the original homestead house built on 80 acres in 1908.   I surprised the current owner with the painting to thank her for letting me paint on her property, but more than that, I felt that she should have it.  She had grown up there, and has wonderful memories of her parents and grandparents, and how proud they were of their farm purchased in 1965. They grew sweet and feed corn.  Much of the farmland in Idaho is being developed into housing.  I hope this parcel will stay in the family.
