"California Colors" ©

Yesterday while captive within the Carriage House Gallery at Descanso Gardens I attempted to paint. It was a very different process then painting plein air or in the studio. You have the brush ready to make a move, not unlike a chess player, and the movement is put on hold to assist a gallery guest. Upon returning to the easel that move that seemed so emanate, evaporates and you begin again, only to repeat the process. Here is the surprise, the guests are so engaging and interested in the paintings that you are just pulled from the joy of painting to the joy of meeting new people. It's a wonderful life!
