I finished the "12 Gardens At Temple Square" Here are 3. I painted them out of order since I didn't get one painted every month and filled in blanks over the past year and a half. Originally I was painting gardens on and around Temple Square, then thought of Hokusai's "36 views of Mt. Fuji" and narrowed the parameters of my self assignment to include the central building of Temple Square in each painting. I have plans to do various gardens now in the area without the inclusion of the temple.
College graduation and a family reunion gave me the opportunity to paint each morning for a week!

June in the beach towns near San Diego is foggy "June Gloom", I have often driven inland to get out of the fog, but decided this time to figure out how to paint the muted color and represent the effect of the fog.
The days in Encinitas were fog bound, but a thinner layer of beach fog at the La Costa Resort gave me a chance to get colorful in the gardens.
On Memorial Day Weekend I had a chance to paint some quick watercolor sketches during rest breaks while canoeing on the Colorado River (11 miles) and hiking in Arches and Canyonlands (8 miles) National Parks! Amazing scenery and fantastic exercise.
