Dec 31 - Last Painting for 2008.... This went FAST!

The front of the Mission Inn, right as the sun disappears and the holiday lights come on. This is a small, 7x5 acrylic done on location as a warmup for the second painting of this historic monument in Riverside.

Cars come in for valet parking under the archway with the flags, and it was a real challenge to capture the impending night AND the lights, as well as the color on the autumn trees. Yes, we still have leaves on our big street trees, and here in our preserve.

The Plein Air Artists of Riverside will be coming over here to our place on January 10 to paint those sycamores and the greening up mountains behind us.
