LPAPA Best of Plein Air 2016

“Spook Mountain”
Available at Forest & Ocean Gallery in Laguna Beach and online at dailybrushwork.com

I’m honored to have two paintings juried in to the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association’s Best of Plein Air Show this year! LPAPA is a fantastic group and I love participating in the events and art opportunities they offer. It’s a privilege to be a part of such a great collection of artists.

“Spook Mountain” is available in the gallery in Laguna Beach and online (link above). I painted it out in Yuma, Arizona around Christmastime while the grandparents, Scott, and the kids climbed around on the rocks and roasted hot dogs. The view was just incredible with the atmospheric lighting separating each mountain receding in the distance. I really had the sense that I was painting the space and the air.


This little watercolor painting was also juried in to the online show and is available here. I often do watercolor sketches while my kids play in the water and explore the tidepools. This was my view while I painted “Crystal Cove Breakers.”



The Best of Plein Air Show opens June 2nd and runs through June 27th at the Forest and Ocean Gallery in Laguna Beach. The opening reception is on Saturday, June 4th, 5-8 pm. Come out and see this great collection of plein air work in person!
