    “One recent summer, as Richard and I drove to San Francisco on Highway One, we reached the area around Pescadero State Beach. We noticed that the meadows on both sides of the highway were blanketed with wildflowers in bloom. The dunes were covered with colors: pinks and lavenders, golds, oranges, and white. I took several photos at the time.” – mh (continued below)

    “Ah, the vineyard in the fall. I felt joy because I had not been out painting with friends in some months because of my fall exhibit schedule. This day was specially warm and pleasant, as I stood among the vines feeling very blessed to be free to paint. The red barn made an attractive focal point for the painting, and I could see the distant hills, soft and blue to provide depth.” – mh

    “The California coast never fails to enliven and inspire me. The format I used here, twice as wide as tall, accentuates the wide expansive beach at this location, and is my representation of the area near Monastery Beach. I found many spring wildflowers in bloom, with the beach in the middle ground.” – mh

    “Traveling south of Carmel on Highway One, there are many places to pull off the road and admire the view. The area depicted here represents one of my favorites. The view is so vast and the colors of the ocean, on a clear day, are enchanting shades of blues and greens. The location depicted here is one I return to again and again to meditate and to paint.” – mh

    Coastal Grazing 12×24

    Unframed size: 12″ x 24″; framed size 18″ x 30″

     

    Along the coast road to Big Sur, I found meadows intermingling with rocky outcroppings, bait to trap this oil painter! The cattle in this view have a pasture looking out at the Pacific Ocean. I’m sure their milk tastes great as they must be happy cows. Golds and blues are great complementary colors and this combination abounds on this scenic CA-1 route. See my painting “Viva la Vida” for the same location looking south.” – mh

    “This painting was the largest and final in a series I made depicting this area. I find in this painting that the path down and the curving beach make a pleasant s-curve composition. The viewer is positioned overlooking the beach from the dunes near Pescadero. The bright flowers in the foreground contrast with the fog off in the distance, giving depth to the painting.” – mh

    Unframed size: 24″ x 36″; framed size 32″ x 44″

     

    “The California coastline has many bays and headlands that are pleasing to the eye. I found this scene looking south from the Pigeon Point Lighthouse area, on a day when the clouds were quite remarkable. The blooming wild mustard and the oxalis formed a colorful foreground, and an overgrown trail led my eye into the scene. The headlands of Año Nuevo, breeding ground for elephant seals, lies in the distance. The yellow flowers of spring are complemented by the lavenders of distant hills and cloud shadows.” – mh

    Unframed size: 12″ x 16″; framed size 18″ x 22″

     

    I’m always drawn to paint big views, and the hills overlooking the Pacific Ocean offer many spectacular scenes. In early summer, before the dry season takes hold, many greens can be found in the grasses, bushes and trees, which here surround a meadow with a trail passing through it. I enjoyed standing in the meadow, listening to the bird song and painting this plein air piece while the ocean breeze kept me cool..” – mh

    This large painting references the coastline North of Santa Cruz. I made several plein air paintings at this location before I decided to make a large painting of the scene. The effect of this size makes me feel I can walk into the scene, hear the waves, and feel the sand squish under my toes. The edges are painted, so it can be hung with or without a frame.” – mh

I’m able to find many pastoral painting opportunities in her neighborhood. This view is I’m looking north with Mt Holyoke behind me.

    “On the back roads of New England one can find calming pastoral scenes.  One autumn day I spotted this scene, which included white horses with a red barn and a background of trees enflamed by Jack Frost. It inspired first a watercolor (White Horses) and later this larger oil painting. The early fall, especially October, is the best time to visit, when the color is extraordinary as the sugar maples, elms, and oaks prepare for winter.” – mh

    La Honda Ranch 9×12 – sold

    “There is an access to the lower end of La Honda Creek Preserve. The entrance is off highway 84, which comes down the mountains to the sea from Skyline Boulevard, arriving on Highway 1 a bit north of Pescadero road. My friend (and fellow artist) Sue and I explored the area and discovered a view of this pastoral scene. The hills were just turning from green to gold, and the cattle were grazing in the meadow near the barns. While we painted, several hikers came, watched us quietly for a bit, and then walked off to the trails nearby. It was well worth the long drive from my Soquel studio to enjoy and paint this scene.” – mh

    “Every spring, for the last 11 years, I’ve gone on a week-long retreat with 8 to 10 other artists to paint in Big Sur. The coast there affords an artist many opportunities. Along the Garrapata State Park area, one can see several headlands jutting out into the sea and becoming more blue in the distance. With all the rain, the Indian Paintbrush plants decorated the dunes with their bright red and magenta flowers. They add sparkle while complementing all the new green growth on the cliffs and hills.” – mh

    When I studied painting in the Tuscan hills above Pisa, Rich and I stayed at this villa, part of The Watermill estate. The river actually ran under our apartment located just off this patio. I am drawn to paint umbrellas. Triangles represent the stability of the union of mind, body and spirit. The shape of umbrellas also allows you to know the direction of the sun as their color changes with each facet of the umbrella. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the watermill in Posara. – mh

    Early this spring, while at an outdoor garden store, I spotted an oriental poppy that matched the color of one I painted 20 years ago after a trip to Monet’s garden in Giverny, France. I bought this poppy plant, established it in my garden behind my art studio, and the plant grew large and took over one end of a garden bed. Finally, the large buds appeared and I waited in anticipation to see the blooms. Once they came, they did not disappoint.” -mh

The village on the hill is Saint-Saturnin-lès-Apt, a village in the Luberon Valley. During late spring, the Flanders Field Poppies splash the meadows with their bright red color.

    The color of these lavender flowers along the Pacific Coast stopped me in my tracks on a plein air expedition with fellow artists. The sea lavender in the foreground sets off the Santa Cruz lighthouse at the small craft harbor. The small plein air painting I did that day led later to this larger studio work. I emphasized the lavender colored shadows from the cypress on the left side to unify the painting.” – mh

    Often in the spring, along the pacific coast, the sky turns into a light show at sunset. When the sky turns rose and gold, these colors are reflected in the ocean. Because of the curve of the Monterey Bay, the sun sets over the land here, not into the ocean. I first painted a 12”x16” titled “Evening Walk” of this sunset. I made mental notes of colors inspired by the intense sky colors. Shades of Rose was completed after that initial study.” – mh
