I’ve been going out painting once a week if I have the time and really enjoy painting outside. I was working on this one when a group of people walked up and started talking to me about Sacramento and the surrounding areas. It turns out they were visiting from the mid west  and one of them was an artist. We had a good chat about painting before they wandered away and I continued my work. It’s fun to have people stop by and talk while I’m painting, I’ve even sold paintings this way.

I usually spend an hour and a half to two hours before I get to a point where I can take it all home and finish up in my studio. This painting is available if you’d like to purchase it drop me a note.
