The Best Days


A sunny day and an empty calendar happens to me exactly twice a year. So I have no choice when the fate aligns the conditions but to grab the opportunity and go out and paint. One such beautiful spring morning I headed out to Parma Park to paint this lush view over Montecito and Carpinteria, with just a little peak of the ocean on the right. After a very rainy winter there were wild flowers everywhere. It felt like a celebration of spring and possibility.

This painting was born to live on a lavendar wall. I hope Ruthie agrees.
