Coastal Hike

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

Bummed my knee has still been sore...pretty sure I have femur pateller tracking syndrome. I'm just trying to rest it this week while at our cottage. Instead, I'm painting all week and trying to stay in my calorie range. Today my knee was feeling a little better and I needed a break from painting indoors and wanted to get out and hike along the beautiful coast with my husband. Nature is so beautiful. My knee seems to be getting better and I was able to get in a three mile hike.

I just finished this painting yesterday for my friend's birthday from a photograph she took of chefs from the Jules Verne Restaurant on the Eiffel Tower. Tomorrow I start a three day painting workshop!

    Seeing nature through the artist's eye is something I always loved doing. Imagining the colors, darks and lights, that make up the scene is mind absorbing and I have spent hours painting when it felt like minutes. Love that you are seeing beautiful nature and that you capture these colors in your paintings. Beautiful! emoticon

    Thank you for your art comments. I absolutely LOVE the coast. I love hiking here it is a California State Park that I really enjoy. I plan to hike more often and as an artist I'm so inspired and take so many pictures...another hobby!

    Great painting.
That is a beautiful coast. It is made even more beautiful when I look outside at all of our snow.

    You are giving and receiving beautiful things while you're out there at the cottage. Receiving the beauty of nature and giving your talent (a beautiful piece of you) in your painting for your friend. Full circle.

The way you use color and texture makes it seem as if your scenes are whispering. I really admire your work!
