Breezy Day at Antelope Valley

I’ve really been experimenting lately… trying different ways to apply the paint, different marks. This piece from Antelope Valley seemed like the perfect image to play with: from the breezy clouds, the poppies in the distance and the puffy whiteish bushes (I have no idea what they are!) all gave me plenty of things to try.

My friends and I went to see the poppies a couple of years ago and it was a wonderful day. Besides having fun together, we also have fun trading paint colors, talking about easels, and well… food and wine!
