Sunset at Montage Resort

The beach and rocks at Montage near Laguna Beach is one of my favorite places. It does not matter if it is cloudy or sunny. It is just beautiful at any time. These paintings were inspired by a visit at sunset. Oil Painting on 5 x 7 panel.

New thoughts on buy local, paint local

I took a long break from the buy local, paint local series. I was doing these large watercolor paintings and they took a lot of time and framing... With teaching taking most of my time, 
I could not work on the larger projects. 
So I tried this small 5x7 inch oil painting yesterday and like this new format. 
I can continue to paint these stories 
and work in a manageable size and timeframe.

Josh invested in a local opera house and surrounding buildings 
and created the Center of Harmony, a friendly group of collaborating businesses 
promoting music, the arts, education and a better community for all.
Check the link to see shops, food, wellness providers and music events. 
Wonderful, unique places where you can support your "buy local" businesses. 
See you there!
Josh is number 3 of my Buy Local, Paint Local series.
