Sunny Morning at Hurdygurdy Creek

I just put the final touches on the piece from our trip to the South Fork of the Smith River. I was standing on a bluff overlooking Hurdygurdy Creek with Rick Tolley, Antoinette Toni Magyar, and John Crater. The sun was blazing hot at 10:00 in the morning. We painted until we were about to drop from heat stroke both mornings, then went down to swim in the cool water!

  1. 'Sunny Morning at Hurdygurdy Creek, Morning Reflections, View of the lost Coast, Baker Beach and Trinidad Bay' - Well on the way to startling paintings.

    I urge you to Google 'Notan' and review how this approach might take your images into something really magnificent.

    A great start to potentially memorable images.

    I have bookmarked your site and will be back.

    1. Thanks Elizabeth! I was just looking at some articles on Notan two weeks ago! Thanks for the tip!
