Right Before Lunch

A plein air landscape painting of a trail through a coastal meadow on the far northern coast of California

Artwork Notes:

A view that never gets old. I actually painted from this exact vantage point 15 years ago. I titled that painting Right after Breakfast and figured that I should revisit that spot and see what happens, so that’s what I did… right before lunch.
