Im not sure who it was, but I was blog surfing and this guy from socal was doing these really cool "memory paintings"- since I see lots of gorgeous scenery on the way to work I figured I should give that memory painting a try.
This is this little hill just North of Rowland for all the Marin vets-

Made it to the newly and radically remodeled DeYoung for the last day of the "California Impressionists" show. It wasnt fantastic but I always enjoy looking at some Edgar Paynes- they had a couple Bierstadts and I learnt a few new names of turn of the century plein air artists that I hadnt heard of. Favorites included- Alson Skinner Clark, Marion Kavanagh Wachtel, and Thaddeus Whelch. The one Alson S. Clark was by far my favorite. They have such great Modern Fine Art shows in there, and I cant wait for them to get some A list painting shows as well- hopefully very soon in the future.

I've nothing to show lately that Im really that happy about... perhaps its the sudden deluge of rain.
One thing though that I never posted was the spread in the GD magazine from last month... They cropped this image down further and used it in a couple other cool ways on some additional pages. Out of all the art they could of used Im glad they used this one-
