Sorrento Valley Freeway
When I first moved to San Diego, I went landscape painting with my friend Aron Wiesenfeld (see his artwork in my links). We set up our easels overlooking the freeway and painted this view alla-prima. Drivers honkingly-cheered our efforts, but that didn't seem to help for some reason. My plein-air painting that day bombed. But I went back to the studio and started this quite large 30x60 inch painting, "Sorrento Valley Freeway", to somehow redeem myself. It's finally finished and I'm bringing it to the gallery tomorrow.
