Tonight I went down to Moss Point to paint an evening contra jour sunset. Stunning light. Another two day painting. I will complete it tomorrow night.
A few minutes into my start I get a phone call from my good friend Eric Bowman, from Portland, Oregon, who is down here visiting his family and taking his little girl to Disneyland. He's got his easel with him so he comes out to paint too.
Eric knocked out a lovely 9 x 12 as I hacked away at my 20 x 24. He really needs to get an invite to this event. He would kill at this show. He is fundamentally a SoCal painter of the old school type. Born and raised here. Plus, Eric got second place in Easton last July and best of show at Sonoma last week. He is on fire right now. And he stopped by to paint with me this evening. Nice to see him this week.
Check his work out:
Going to bed. More to paint tomorrow.
