Hello everybody I’m looking forward to displaying this painting at Zooker’s Café in Carpinteria, California. This will be my first time exhibiting with this plein air group- Carpenteria Plein Air Painters. **BREAKING NEWS – I was picked for the poster, thank you! The show runs from October 20th- December 15th. Come and have lunch with me once the show is hung! I painted this one in two sessions on the beach and three studio sessions. It was fun to paint such a big painting in plein air!
