"Vasquez Rocks" © #vasquezrocks #laurawambsgans

The last 10 days I have been painting pieces for an upcoming show of historic and contemporary landscape paintings of the Santa Clarita Valley and nearby areas.  Vasquez Rocks is a location that many people recognize and respond too with fondness.  With this in mind I added the park to my group of paintings.

"Julia Pfeiffer Falls" © #Bigsurart

The Julia Pfeiffer Falls has been an iconic location for photographers and painters for decades.  Usually the scene is captured in the late afternoon, with the falls and cliff face warmly lit.  I happened upon the scene early in the morning and was struck how the opposite lighting created a whole new view and thought I would give it a try.
