california color

In February my husband and I took a trip to California with his family. My brother-in-law, Jay, lives in San Diego which gave us all an excuse to escape the Michigan winter. 

The perfect jean-jacket-temperature, constant sunshine, desert, mountains, ocean, cliffs...California gave us a lot of reasons to fall in love. I came back inspired by what I saw there. 

I've been really challenged while trying to work out these colors, forms, and memories on canvas. I remember reading that travel is the best form of education you can give to yourself- so, here's to more traveling!

And trying to capture that California color.
