Antelope Valley

Some of my painting friends and I were “Chasing Wildflowers” last year. One of the places we went was the Poppy Preserve in Antelope Valley.

The poppies were absolutely spectacular last year. We arrived at the preserve and it was packed — there were so many people that we couldn’t paint there. Luckily, someone had told a friend a roundabout way to see the preserve. So… we got back in the car and drove around and up and what a view!

It was also quiet except for the wind whistling through the passes.

We set-up and painted.

This painting is 5″ x 5″, oil on cradled board.
