It’s cold in Southern California, and I can hardly believe it! I’m sure people in the east coast wouldn’t consider 32 degrees in the evening and 55 degrees in the afternoon a winter wonderland but for a native Californian its cool.
The inspiration for the artwork I posted was taken from my neighbor’s yard and the surrounding landscape. The little orange tree vibrates with color when its cold. When I try to capture nature, it’s a humbling task. I like it when a small bit of color in a landscape just captures your attention and then you fight to put it on canvas. I enjoy the learning process between nature and the artist.
