I live in San Diego and I spend a lot of time in the house, painting Tuscany. I think it's time to get out of the house and paint the scenery in my town. My first painting destination will be Balboa Park. The Park is 12,00 acres and contains museums, gardens, restaurants and the Zoo! A lot of the buildings were built for the 1915 Panama-California Exposition that took place there. I am in the mood to paint Spanish Architecture, lily ponds, Japanese Gardens and Organ Pavilions.
I did this painting of the tower in Balboa Park a few years ago. I flipped through the pages of one of my old journals today and found it. That's what got me thinking of how much scenery there is around my town to paint. I have a deluxe watercolor painting easel I bought this summer to take to Vermont to paint. It hasn't been out of the closet since I got home. If you live near me, let me know if you want to join me in my paint the scenery in my town effort. If you don't live near me you could start your own, paint the scenery in my town efforts. I don't want to antagonize anyone who lives in a cold snowy climate with this post. If you like my idea, you can look out your window and paint a snowy scene and I will post it here.
