This is my latest, and we've decided this will be the one to save for "Close to Home". It's called Calm Waters, and it's based on part of the Monterey Bay coastline. This area really is a painter's paradise. Mom should think about organizing a plein air class/expedition-- too bad Aunt Alice isn't still a travel agent. Well, there's always Lodi Lake and other fine sights back home. You'll find beautiful agricultural landscapes in a lot of the Lodi Community Art group's portfolios.
