"Santa Cruz Cliffs" 9"x12" (AVAILABLE)



In my haste to take as many shots as possible and make it to Medford by midnight, I must have climbed through a patch or two of poison ivy or poison oak. This is one of the first scenes I shot the morning of May 5th. I drove to Visalia the first day after my daughter's wedding and the next morning I was climbing all over Santa Cruz and points north for the next 12 hours. I can now tell you that poison ivy does not clear up for at least two weeks. Hopefully all the shots I took will prove to be worth it. This scene was really fun with the mist and cave or arch opening on this cliff. Click on the image for a larger view.

Bummer about the poison oak, that itch had to be maddedning. You captured a great painting though - the look of a overcast California sea scape. I especially appreciate the handling of the glassy reflection in the creek.

Thanks Jeremy and Arti. I'll remember this piece for two reasons. One, the poison oak and two, it didn't sell in the auction. I think I'm going to work into it a little more and get some better atmosphere going and the frame it for my studio.
