This may seem like it came completely out of left field, and it did. While I was downloading Savannah photos from my camera, I came across some from our California trip last fall that were still on the flash card, and this painting was inspired by one of those. I really had fun playing with shapes and textures in this.
Now I’m working on a large Louisiana woodland painting and a small Savannah landscape at the same time. Working with the different color schemes and textures is keeping me on my artistic toes, for sure!
