Paintings from an East Bay group of landscape artists working outdoors.
We hiked up the hill from Crest Ave and there was a spectacular view in all directions on the top. I found a place facing west toward San Francisco. Rebeca was facing east. All of a sudden a helicopter started flying around us lower and lower. they must of thought we were up to no good. The finally left and we were able to paint. My canvas is 24 by 30 which is the largest size I have used outside. I am happier with the large size and will try even larger. When my easel is staked it resists the wind pretty well.
