'A' Street and Main

I'm in Julian, California for the week, painting for the upcoming group plein air show at the Santa Ysabel Gallery.  The show opens this Saturday at 4 PM and will hang through June 13th.

Yesterday, Joe Garcia and I painted in downtown Julian.  But come to think of it, Julian is so small that 'downtown' is debatable.  Perhaps I should say 'in-town'?  The weather has been perfect and no wind or bugs.  We've lucked out.

The photograph of  'A' Street & Main is too dark but I'm working on my laptop where I don't have the capabilities to lighten it.  It's an 8" x 10" oil on board.

Today, Joe and I will be painting in Julian again.  I have my eye on the local pastry shop.  The front door, signs and trim are red.  Yummy!


  1. love it! Especially the shadows in the foreground.

  2. I recognized that spot before I read the post! So nice to feel a direct connection to a corner of the internet.
