Now that summer break is here I have been able to begin working on my next painting, Glowing Monterey Shore. I just finished sealing the drawing on the board, and once it dries I will be able to begin the painting process. I have really been looking forward to painting some more of the longer horizontal paintings to add more options for my clients to choose from. After painting so many mountains scenes this past year and reviewing 20+ of my future landscape designs, I have chosen to paint the ocean next. I am especially eager to get to painting the ice plant in the foreground, glowing orange-red.
