Happy New Year

The paint is still flying here .... below are some more lunchtime landscape paintings

and my final from Jackson Sze's class - think I want to take another pass at it but it's looking pretty good. The assignment was to use our on location paintings to inform a concept piece. I fused El Matador beach with the architecture at Pasadena City Hall to create a fantasy landscape. I imagine it's a civilization that worships a landscape painting god to insure clouds don't change your lighting half way through your painting. Of course ... where would the challenge be in that?

Looking forward to working even harder this year ... I'm pretty happy at the progress I've made in 2010. Continuing with the landscape painting with the hope of making a landscape painting book for APE next October. Happy New Year!
