Bridgeport, California in the Rain

"Morning at Twin Lakes" 6"h x 8"w plein air

This excursion really represented a turning point for me; I painted in inclement weather! I was so excited to be spending the week in beautiful Bridgeport, California with my husband, who would be fishing. My mother in law even came and offered to watch our little dachshund while I painted! Imagine the disappointment when we learned that there would be only one day of sunshine during our trip! Well, we brought some "weather proof" gear and trudged on! I discovered that painting outdoors (even in the rain) is always an exhilarating experience!


  1. So happy to see this wonderful work! Can't wait to go there myself and see all the places you have captured with your talent!

  2. thanks Gina! This whole area is breath taking at every turn. It's difficult to decide on "subject matter" when there's so much beauty to see!

  3. Thank you for creating this wonderful blog. You have a lovely loose and impressionistic style of painting. All your work is wonderful.
    Best wishes,

  4. I just visited your website. You are really skilled, both with landscapes and with portraits.

  5. Thank you for your kind words, Vinayak!
