Going Backwards: Plein Air Two Weeks Ago

"California Poppies"
10" x 13"
$100

A few weeks ago, my Santa Clara Valley Watercolor Society plein air group painted at a reserve that is about a mile from the 49ers Levi Stadium. Amidst the commercial properties and new condos, Santa Clara managed to set aside an old golf course and restore its natural state. We arrived at Ulistac Nature Reserved on a sunny, hot morning. I love California Poppies so they became my subject. I have some of these babies in my yard in spite of being warned that they like to spread where I don't want them. So far, they are spreading where I do want them.

So very pretty, Mary!

I want to thank you for your continual encouragement and support. I don't often feel too hopeful but to know that you've been through starting over, I feel a little better knowing you've come out stronger and happier!
