Bluff Reflections - Original Oil Painting of the Back Bay Wetlands in Newport Beach, California



"Bluff Reflections"
11" x 14" Oil on canvas panel.

For the next few months this painting along with 5 others of mine are on display at the Muth Interpretive Center in Newport Beach, California. My work is being exhibited along side two other very talented local landscape painters. All of us have been painting in the Back Bay during the last few months creating new work especially for this show.

Admission to the Muth Interpretive Center is free and open to the public. It is a wonderful place to to learn more about the coastal wetlands of Newport Beach and it's mission is "To promote and support the protection and preservation of California Coastal Wetlands through environmental education." The center has lots of fun learning opportunities for adults as well as children. Also, the Center is a model for all other Southern California facilities of its kind. It sets new standards for protecting and preserving open space and endangered wetlands in a highly populated urban setting.

If you are in the area I hope you'll stop by the Muth Center, learn a little about the Back Bay and then go enjoy the amazing landscape. There are lots of painting opportunities as well as walking trails in the area.

My work will be on display from April - June, 2012.
