Day Tripper

Day Tripper

Piece description from the artist

Here's what I learned the day I painted "Day Tripper" and that is that I should scope out the location for my plein air paintings before I lug all my equipment up a mountain.

On this particular day, we went for a hike in Malibu and unfortunately got a later start than planned because at the last minute I decided I wanted to bring my easel and pastels and paint at the top of the mountain overlooking the Pacific. Did I mention that it was a 3.5 hour hike to the top? Did I mention that it was one of the hottest August days on record? Luckily for me, and as often happens, I got distracted by this dirt path and the way the light was hitting these rocks and I set up my studio in the shade of a live oak tree. I never did make it to the top of the mountain that day but I did get this gem of a painting out of it.
