I remember this day so well! Mike and I went to Napa Valley for last Valentine’s day holiday for a long weekend. After visiting Copia (where we learned how to make hot chocolate and home-made marshmallows in a cooking class), we played fetch with Gracie in a field behind Copia beside what I guess is the Napa river. My reference photo for this painting was taken a bit later, so the light even warmer.
I think this represents where I’m going. Continuing to losen up, being more expressive. What do you think?
Mike and Gracie on that day…me, behind the camera as usual 🙂
