The paintings "capture so perfectly the feel of the California landscapes I was born into and know so well. " - David Cavagnaro author, Living Water
Sales of these paintings supports the ongoing conservation and maintenance of habitat for the redlegged frogs (a threatened species) and many other animals at my home garden and surrounding land. The frogs have been breeding here for the past five years. The frogs and all animals thank you!
If you have a special place in the Carmel River Watershed (or beyond) you would like a commissioned painting of, Paola would be happy to paint it for you.
When we allow wildness, our own spirit, to flourish within, we can also respect and allow nature’s spirit, the wild outside, to exist.
