Three palm trees at Balboa

A plein air painting day with four artist frineds at Balboa Island. What a beautiful day with temp in the 80's. This is my first time here and really enjoy the scenery. I still felt rushed in setting up for painting as usual and nothing was in order. The first painting didn't turn out satifying. In the afternoon I felt more relaxed and sitting under a shade. Looking at these three palm trees gives me an urge to paint them.

Dancing Horse

Most off my photo on horses were taken in Sequim, Washington a retirement community. Those horses were either eating grass or stand still, rarely have any action. I decide to paint one with action, creating from the many references pictures on horses.

Bright cat

After a couple months' absence from my blog, now I am back painting like mad. One reason is the AAIE annual show is coming and I haven't had anything to show. The main reason is my uncle who has been in bad health condition has miracleous recovered. I choose these bright color for this painting to show my emotion of happiness and relief.
