Lake Tahoe Inlet

A hot day in Ojai with a little bit of humidity… surprising. But… I did feel a little cooler while I was painting this scene from Lake Tahoe. (Or maybe it was the air conditioning in my studio lol)

A couple of years ago, a friend and I entered a plein air competition in South Lake Tahoe. It was a lot of fun and a lot of work! We all painted within designated areas trying to produce as many paintings as we could for the competition. I think the hardest part was that a lot of people were from the area and knew where to paint – it took Kay and I a lot longer to find the good spots.

But… we had fun exploring and I know I’ll paint more from that trip soon.
