Matanzas Creek Winery

Yesterday we went to Matanzas Creek Winery in Santa Rosa. Lovely lavender fields, like being in France.

#39 Daily Painting - Showing Frame

This is a potted plant that I painted plein air in Locke, CA, on a bright sunny day. It was a scraggly little plant in a clay pot with pitiful pink flowers. I set my easel and in no time set to painting.

Painting #29 A

Amador Fall
When we were camping at Jackson Rancheria, we drove around doing plein air painting. This house set against the vineyard was what caught my eye.

Painting #28 - All Aglow

I know, I know, I haven't been posting a painting every day. I've been very sick all week. Some nasty bug I caught that has made my asthma flare up and every night I'm having trouble breathing. I'm missing my gym workout so much and am sick of the inactivity. I've been forcing myself to paint whenever I have the energy.

Tomorrow I'm going to be painting at a big event at Rush Ranch and on Sunday I'll be painting at another event at a winery in St. Helena. Both are events that are open to the public and they've invited plein air groups to participate. Should be fun, I'm looking forward to painting plein air this weekend as I've pretty much been cooped up in the house all week.

So, I guess I should redo my painting a day goal to A Painting a Day, As Long As I'm not sick. :-P

Here's a painting I did before I got sick.

Painting #27 - Pleasants Valley Farm

The frame below is handmade by Michael and hand painted by me.  Mike has been very busy making a bunch of frames for the upcoming art gallery I'll be going in, in June. He's also making them for several of my paintings that will be at the Art on the Vine event in Fairfield on the same first weekend in June.

Painting a Day - #24 & #25

You saw this one from yesterday's post from painting at the iris farm. Here it is again, as painting a day #24 and below this is painting a day #25. I figured it's been awhile since I posted my daily paintings, (I've been busy working on orders) that I should try to get caught up here.

Here's painting #25.

Plein air #23

Here's my latest, it's an 8 x 10. When we were painting in Tiburon last month, I snapped a photo of this house by the roadside with Mt. Tam behind it for future reference and decided to do a quick little study of it.

#24 Landscape - Point Reyes Seashore

We were painting in and around Point Reyes and happened to come upon this beautiful scene off the road. There was nowhere to park to paint this plein air so my husband slowed the truck down for me to capture a reference photo.

Happy Easter and Daily Painting #20


I hope everyone has a lovely Easter today. This was painted at Big Break Regional Park in Antioch, the same day I did the clouds over the water with the windmills in the previous post.

Painting a Day #8 - Green Valley, California

This is my number 8 in a painting a day series, link here.  My goal is to paint one each day and so far, I'm pretty much on track. I didn't post any over the weekend because I was busy working and unable to. I did paint though.
