original oil painting, 11x14 $475
Summer is almost over - the last day of summer is only two weeks away - September 22. Recently, I painted with the Woodside Plein Air group at Ann Hogle's house in Woodside. Ann's home is on an acreage with native oaks and redwood trees. Ann and her husband have a big vegetable garden, flower garden, lemon and lime trees. They are kind of self sufficient, which is good because they are up in the Santa Cruz mountains. I chose a view of her swimming pool because I liked the organic shape, the orange retaining wall and the reflections in the water.
