On the way home from spending the day on the lake, my husband asked “If you could choose, would you live with a view of the ocean or a view of the mountains?” This is a challenging question, because I love both of these scenes so much. But now that we are living in the foothills, I’m finding so much beauty in the trees and rugged nature of the mountains.
I’m falling in love with the smell of pine trees in the morning, seeing the forest silhouetted against the moonlight, and spying the bright green new growth on the gentle giant redwoods.
My inspiration for painting is tied to my surroundings, and I’m buzzing with ideas in my new landscape. Something exciting is happening, I can feel it!
