Painting at Santa Paula Airport

Over the mountains and through the woods to Santa Paula.

P1010202My friend encouraged me to go to Ojai on Sat.  We would go to Santa Paula Airport

on Sunday for their Open House and Paint Out.P1010204Santa Paula is a small airport that doesn’t have big time security.  How refreshing  It seemed like a throw back in time.

Santa Paulo is a small airport.

It was scary for me because I had never drawn or painted an airplane before.  It was a beautiful day and the air seemed filled with excitement.

My favorite painting of the day!

P1010222My friend and I walked around looking at all the planes. Lots of small colorful old and new planes.P1010216

 

I started to paint and needed to measure proportions and look at spaces between

the wings and body of the airplanes.  I was painting with watercolor.

My friend was painting in oils.  She will have an open studio on April 9 with the Ojai Open Studios.  Karen Lewis and Linda Taylor will exhibit their work at Karen’s Studio.P1010263It was windy, planes were taking off and people walked by.  People had their hangers open for display.  It was so

interesting.

What a great day.  They have an open house the first Sunday of next month.  I wish I could go again.  I think my friend will go.

Back in Ojai

It was a fun Trip.  The ART Center was getting ready for a psychedelic Party.

Window View Watercolor

Another watercolor from my window.  I omitted the telephone wires and changed the buildings.  I was most interested in painting the sky.

I ride my folding bike to the beach to check out the surf.  Little Corona is quiet.

Back home I’m trying different ideas for paintings in my sketchbook.  I realize how many techniques I’ve forgotten.

I’m using collage from dictionary pages torn to look like buildings.  This will be a good idea for my NYC art.

Painting at Crystal Cove, I sold this piece and the next one to a passing lady.  She asked to see what I was doing and said "Oh, your a real artist.  Do you sell your work?"  Yes, and I sold 2 pieces to her. It was a fun day.
