    Anna's View 12x16

    Anna’s View 12×16

    Unframed size: 12″ x 16″

     

    In 2008, another artist lived in a home with a dock that bordered Corcoran Lagoon. She invited me to paint there and I practiced painting reflections on water. I truly enjoyed capturing the quiet mood of the lagoon in the morning soft light. I could see the Pacific Ocean in the distance with the fog hovering just off shore. Anna has quite a view!” – mh

    In autumn, the leaves at all the vineyards in the Corralitos Valley turn a warm gold. I go out to paint before the winter pruning takes place. This little plein air painting contrasts the cool greens of the eucalyptus with the warm golds of the vines. “ – 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

    Big Sur Coast 30x40 oil

    Unframed size: 30″ x 40″; framed size 38″ x 48″

     

    “This painting was created in the studio. I wanted to emphasize the variety of colors that appear on the coastal shelves in the early summer. Painting the view at this area of the Big Sur Coast requires a finesse of the values, as the layers of land drifting to the sea lose their color, going from greens in the foreground to blues in the far distance. In summer, once California’s coast has had sufficient warmth and sunlight, the wildflowers abound. This area is one of my favorite summer painting locations.” – mh

    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

    Shark Fin Cove is a well known painter’s spot just south of Davenport between San Francisco and Santa Cruz. The unusual formation looks like a shark’s fin. In this painting, I put the “fin” in the foreground and focused on the ocean and the shadow cast by the opposing cliff.

    I’m always drawn to paint big views, and the hills overlooking the Pacific Ocean offer many spectacular scenes.

    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 farm house creates a distant focal point as the radiating vines lead you into the painting. I enjoyed the day with painting friends, as I worked on this piece in a vineyard in Correlitos, CA. Autumn color abounded on the pinot vines and their oranges complement the blue sky. Back in the studio, I used this painting as a guide to create a larger painting.” – mh

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

    Little Sur River 12×16

    Unframed size: 12″ x 16″

     

    This plein air painting was created during a trip to Big Sur during an art contest. The view of the Little Sur River from this vantage point is unequalled! The river made a pleasing S curve as it made its way to the sea. I parked on the side of Highway 1. However, I felt quite vulnerable to the large semi trucks that travel the coast route. As they turn up the hill, for a few seconds, they were pointed right at me! Very unsettling, so I did not complete it at the time. Now it is done.” – mh

    I began this painting during the Carmel Art Festival in 2009. It has been in my collection since. At Whaler’s Cove, I hiked up the stairs with my gear, and found a location where I could see the Carmelite Monastery in the distance. The shrubs have now grown taller, and it is more difficult to see the Monastery. The tide was out and I liked how the opposite rocky shore led the eye to the monastery.” – mh

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.

    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

From this view you can not see the lighthouse which is perched on the 361-foot rock cliff out in the Pacific Ocean. I enjoyed how the fog gently touched the coastline and the beach curved up to the light station promontory. Point Sur Lighthouse, 40 feet tall, is a light station at Point Sur 19 miles south of Carmel, California. It was established in 1889 and is part of Point Sur State Historic Park.

Finally, the large buds appeared and I waited in anticipation to see the blooms. Once they came, they did not disappoint.” -mh

    Vineyard Shadows 18×24

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

     

    “I am always intrigued by a scene that provides contrast in light and shadow. Above this California vineyard grow a row of oak trees with their large trunks and overhanging branches. The trees cast interesting pattern with their shadows on the warm ground plane. The sun was shining brightly on the distant vines, which were turning gold in autumn season. I painted the shadows a lavender/gray to complement the vineyard colors.” – mh

    This plein air painting was made from a private farm overlooking the vineyards in the Corralitos area of Santa Cruz County. The elevation of my painting site allowed for a long view down the valley. I softened and blurred the distant hills and trees to add more depth to the painting.” – mh

    “When I paint along the Big Sur coast, I feel a wonderful excitement, living life to my fullest. Viva  la Vida is an expression of this feeling of joy. Traveling south from Carmel, past the turn into Rocky Point Restaurant, lies this meadow framed by Eucalyptus trees on one side and the rocky coast on the other. Hurricane point lies off in the distance. My painting “Coastal Grazing” is a view of this same meadow looking north.” – mh

    “I occasionally travel south from Santa Cruz to the Elkhorn Slough. The area containing the slough, the Elkhorn National Wildlife Preserve, is a little visited but great place for walking, bird watching, appreciating the trees and just enjoying being out in nature. I’ve hiked around and kayaked in the slough. I sometimes take my paints and easel, and on this occasion I found this scene, set off with good morning lighting. I made this painting then and there. – mh
