Cambria Paintings

Here are a few paintings from the great time we spent exploring the area around Cambria, California. These paintings can be viewed at the Just Looking Gallery in San Luis Obispo.

Cambria Adventure

We had a great time in Cambria and were amazed with the mild temperatures and abundant wildlife. Natlalie got to play on the beach and climb a lot of trees. She also enjoyed jump roping to the sunset and was able to do 51 jumps. We visited Hearst Castle, kayaked, hiked a bunch, surfed and ate way too much (thanks to Red Moose Cookie Company). It was a joy to visit with family and friends and explore some of California’s finest coastline.

Cambria Trees

We escaped the heat of Ojai to the lovely and cool coastal town of Cambria. I have been enjoying painting the local scenery, hiking with the family, and checking out the local flora and fauna. Natalie loves all the trees and has decided that there must be “tree climbing time” each and every day. Here are several photos of her with different trees. She has also enjoyed seeing the hawks, owls, and hummingbirds that live in the trees outside our deck. Here is a new tree painting from Cambria that is at Just Looking Gallery in San Luis Obispo. I am busy painting more work that will be for my upcoming show on Saturday, July 28th at the gallery.

Decorating the Town

I’m very excited to welcome Janelle Kandziora and her family to our beautiful town of Ojai and to see her unique vision of interior design. I wish her much success with the grand opening of her new store and am proud to have my artwork in Janelle Interiors. Here is a new painting from the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa, titled “Enchanted Evening”, measuring 20″ x 16″, that is on display at her store.
