California Dreaming


Life has been busy-ness as usual, but I managed to find time to paint this little bit from a friend's photo. I don't know why photos of the western United States are really pulling at me right now -- it's not like I'm the one who is going to California...
Anyway -- the colors make me happy.

This is just so beautiful Linda. I just tried a building with shadows and learned a lot looking at yours. I mean, learned how to do it.

You'd think she'd want to have her friend Linda and Marta tag along to SF.......LOL! I could show her SF!!! Maybe you two will have to plan a so. cal trip sometime and we can do it LA style! And why does she want to go to no. cal anyway, it's all on fire!!!
