Spring has arrived
David and I are involved with Ginny Burdick’s upcoming show, ‘Double Vision’ so we’ve been looking for new subject matter. The idea for the show is for a photographer and a painter to interpret the same area/scene/subject matter. We visited Sierra Foothill Conservancy’s Fine Gold property last Thursday. We met Franka Gabler there in the evening. The hills have finally greened and the oaks are beginning to leaf out. Though we had evening clouds the sunset wasn’t colorful. It was fun to get together with Franka and enjoy the beautiful landscape of the foothills.
David and I went to Hites Cove yesterday to see the poppies. I think between these two photo days I have two locations I can collaborate with Dave for the show and possibly one for Franka. I’ve already painted one painting in collaboration with Franka.
We saw a few friends hiking and another friend from our photography group on the Hites Cove trail. There were lots of photographers and hikers. It was quite warm, mid 70’s, but it’s cooled down today with the expected rain arriving tonight. Fingers crossed we get a good amount. It will be interesting to see how the poppies fair with the rain.
