The Southern Sierras and Yokohl Valley

These pieces, created on location (I paint primarily en plein air, French for “in the open air”, to study the way light reveals our world) during a painting trip to the Visalia area this last March, will be part of a new exhibition: Paintings from the Southern Sierra FoothillsCelebrating 100 Years: Capturing California’s Preserved Lands and Historic Districts (that’s a mouthful) at the Old Mill (El Molino Viejo) in San Marino, CA. The opening reception will be on Thusday, October 1 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Hope you can make it! This paint-out and exhibition, organized by the California Art Club in conjunction with the Sequoia Riverlands Trust, is one of a number of exhibitions and events to celebrate the CAC’s 100th anniversary of its founding in 1909.
