A Day in Balboa

Pin It
"A Day In Balboa"
Oil, 6" x 6" on canvas.
Sold.

Now that I am back in town I am deeply committed to finishing the paintings for my "Headlines" show. I have all of the headlines selected (from the South Pasadena Review newspaper in the 1920's, 30's and 40's) and the inspiration photos taken so all I am doing now is painting! I will not post any of the finished paintings until the show opens ... so it will be another month before they are posted here.
I am trying to also complete a daily painting. I am doing a show in Balboa on May 16th so I am trying to complete some small pieces for that show. Be prepared to see lots of boats and coastal scenes this month. It might be a while before you see flowers again!

The colors are beautiful and luscious! I like the subject. The ferris wheel is a nice counterpoint to the angles of the buildings. Nice painting!
