So Much to see!!! So much to Paint!!!

I had the good fortune to spend a week plein air painting with a friend in Marin, CA, Everything from Bodega Bay to the Golden Gate Bridge. Hats off to the Daily Paintworks site because that is how Teresa and I met, originally participating in Karin Jurick’s Challenge Blog and later on the Daily Paintworks. 
What an Amazing week, eating breathing and thinking art 24/7, with someone who understands my obsession.

6" x 6" Oil on Panel

Some paintings are simply fun to paint. This is my latest addition in the Daily Paint Works Challenges. My husband reminded me that the old Zippo Lighters would stay lit till you popped the lid shut. I could not resist adding the flame.
