Lombardi's Ranch 48 hours ago
I painted this on Saturday with the Santa Clarita Artists Association. We meet once a month and paint plein aire. This was a real challenge, since very quickly it became as busy as Disneyland, hot, lots of wind, and hundreds of people pushing into my space, nearly knocking me over to show their kids that "the artist is painting a picture." The hardest part? It was like painting in the middle of a buffalo stampede, so I really had to focus and ignore the public. I did this in about a hour and a half to 2 hours.
Correction: We just saw on the news that Lombardi's did not burn in the fires!
