Just thought I'd put this up--this is the most current work in progress. It is based on a photograph I took on a bike ride near Point Mugu on the Pacific Crest Highway a couple months earlier. I was really happily surprised to see it got some favorable reactions from the First Friday open studio event at my studio at Bell Arts Factory last Friday. I took some more photos yesterday and will play around with this idea more, especially since I almost never paint (representational) landscapes.
The other thing I wanted to mention is Human Rights Watch, a non-profit humanitarian organization dedicated to informing the public about global human rights abuses. Check out their website, sign some petitions, and spread the word: www.hrw.org.
