Catalina Plein Air
If you add a little figure painting in this image you would have the whole view of me plein air painting. This was the best I could do alone. You can see the location, inland on the Island of Catalina and the beauty of the rolling hills, diving into Manzanita groves and the rising mountains in the distance driving the fog back to sea. A small fox came quite close and bounded as if on air through the wild grasses. The earth surface glows with true iridescence because of the natural Steatite. I wish you could hear the many bird songs that are the music of the inland. It was a magical week of painting.
