Plein Air at the Mission



My colleague and friend Danbob Thompson, my boss and friend Ed Murrieta, and I went to Santa Barbara to paint on Friday. It was really beautiful and it all ended with some good seafood on the pier.

Started this pastel painting at the Mission but the light was changing so fast I took a picture and finished it up at home. This was just a magnificent tree fertilized by several ancient deceased Catholic pilgrims........talk about your "miracle grow."

Also at the Mission......oil on masonite
