|"Cool Refuge–San Rafael, CA", 8x8 oil|
This is my last and favorite painting from the workshop. It is another plein air from the St. Vincent School for Boys in the hills of Marin County, north of San Francisco. I just loved the punctuation of the tall dark Italian Cypress trees, and how they frame the entrance to his chapel. It was a warm sunny day, but luckily I was able to paint in the shade of some leafy trees like the one on the left.
