This painting shows the project now finished, no dam! and the river flowing through. It is so quiet compared to a year ago when all the construction was going on.
This is a large painting, 30" x 48". A challenge to execute with all the boulders in the river that make up the step pools. Honoring the work of all those who did the construction of this new river section, I wanted to paint it as accurately as possible! I went out four times to develop this painting to the last image below. Getting to the site is a pilgrimage of sorts, each time having accessed the site through the San Clemente Rancho, an hour from my home, part of it on a narrow dirt road in the steep, hilly Carmel Valley back country.
