Harmony Hills

Harmony Hills 16 x 20"

Allied Arts of Cambria opens a new show tomorrow night, a plein air exhibit that will run through July 4. I have entered my first ever landscape. Done in acrylic on canvas using gessoed cheesecloth for texturing in the clouds and hills. Oil pastels were used to highlight sections of the hills

Harmony is a little hamlet, between Morro Bay and Cambria that is put on the market now and then - the entire town of several commercial buildings, a (now-closed) post office and one street through the center of town. Official population is listed at 18. Opening reception for the show begins at 5:30 at the Gallery at the Old Grammar School. See you there!

  1. Oh, I'm so sorry I didn't see these earlier. Cheesecloth! I love it. Harmony always seems to me like it's on its way to a ghost town, but it's so cheery!
