Last week I spent another magical four days painting with great artists and good friends in beautiful Avalon, in Catalina Island. Each year three other artist, Terry d Chacon, Nita Harper and Joan Coffey and I venture to this island for our fill of plein air painting, morning to night. The light there is just magical, even if it is a foggy morning, which it can be at times in the summer. This is my 7th year going there in August, and Terry and Joan's 9th. We never seem to tire looking for new locations, and painting new scenes in familiar locations. Here are my paintings for this trip and a few photos of the fun. Enjoy!!
