I'm traveling this month, painting and photographing in the hills and agricultural areas
of Central California and on the coast all the way down to San Juan Capistrano. The paintings I post this month will be one's painted on location while I am traveling. This painting is a scene along Hwy 152 (Pacheco Pass). It's a region with Oak covered hills and valleys, always beautiful in any season, any light. Its Spring, so the Oaks are just leafing out, and the hills are covered with a brilliant green carpet. Only the Sycamores remain leafless. In this scene I like the contrast between the lush green of the hills, trees, shrubs, and the tall pale,almost violet, Sycamores. This painting is oil on 8 x 10 canvas covered panel. SOLD
