"Malibu Creek Park" ©



The California Art Club held their first quarterly paint out for the year today. Members could choose between several locations, I picked Malibu Creek State Park. What a spot! Signs of spring are covering the hills and dusting the trees. The creek is full, wide and a deep brown under the cloudy skies. A deer passed by, while we painted, as if seeing easels, umbrellas and artists dotting the landscape is an everyday occurrence. Maybe it is. During our lunch break Karl Dempwolf was kind enough to give a critique, in exchange for a sandwich. I would have bought him dinner too, for his valuable insights into our paintings. Great day....

Dear Laura, your work is beautiful! I work for the California State Parks Foundation and we've often discussed such a "paint out" to help our state parks. If we ever get organized I'll make sure to contact you!

Thanks,
