“Mornings in May” The original was an acrylic wash on canvas

Painted on an early quiet morning.   I hiked up a bluff in Torrey Pines with a spectacular view:  the sky heavy, dripping with marine layer, ocean crashes below – painting here was everything I thought it would be.  We are in the midst of May Grey as I write this and some people are always … “When are we going to see the sun!” and while I very much enjoy the sunshine and wait in anticipation of the fog dissipating, I LOVE the atmospheric quality of the fog at the beach in early the morning.  It’s so peaceful and beautiful.  The light has such a softness, the salty air, I am reminded of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Bare Trees’ album cover art.  I actually had my canvas out on the bluff which is relatively easy to get to and set up my outdoor easel.   I dripped washes while turning the canvas, lifting out with a cloth to reveal the lighter washes underneath making the cloud shapes.  I also added a touch of cadmium light across the horizon as a bit of sun coming up in the east reflected on the surface of the water.  It was one of those mornings when you just look around and think … WOW I live here!  I think because I painted the canvas from every direction it seriously looks good hung at any orientation on the wall.  I abstracted the landscape completely by color.  I go back to that area often.  Just a few steps off the trail feels like I am a million miles away from chaotic distraction.
