In my last post (click HERE to read it) I wrote about how I had to throw my gear into my bag and run before the tide came in and I was forced to swim home. Here is my painting from that morning in Laguna Beach. I'm very happy with the loose brushwork and I think working quickly had a lot to do with it.

Also, I just found out The Laguna Plein Air Painters Assoc. just added me to their signature membership roster. I am completely honored and humbled. All the artists who applied were asked to submit 10 paintings (2 studio and 8 plein air) for judge Jean Stern, director of the Irvine Museum, to review and score. The 10 highest scores were then selected and given signature status. It is an amazing group of highly skilled painters and I am proud to now be a signature member. Wow.
