I go camping every year to the same spot at Mt Madonna, CA with a wonderful group of families. This painting is from a walk I took this year down a road that links the different campgrounds. It was a bright sunny morning after a previously foggy day and I was thrilled to see the sun. I painted this in oils on Arches paper for oils. I signed and titled the back. Measures 6x9 inches.
I am a painter. I have loved painting all my life. I studied Art and Art History at UC Berkeley, and have been painting professionally ever since. I have shown in galleries and museums all over California, and have sold hundreds of paintings all over the world, from New York, to Finland and Qatar. I am inspired by nature, color and emotion. Hopefully you will get a sense of calm, happiness, or wonder from what I paint. I'm not out to make political statements with my work, but to express joy and gratitude of life through the medium of oil paints. Claire Whitehead
