When it does actually rain in Southern California.

I find the trees in Southern California endlessly fascinating.

At Salt Creek Beach in Dana Point, California, there is a nice variety of trees. It's not just the textures and shapes of the trees themselves, but their shadows and light effects on the environment around them. With this painting, I set out to capture the late afternoon sun blasting through the lace-like patterns created by these interwoven limbs and leaves.

"Through the Trees, Salt Creek Beach" (oil on linen, 18"x24") is available for sale at the +Laguna Plein Air Painters Association's 20th Annual Laguna Plein Air Painting Invitational at Festival of Arts/Pageant of the Masters.

Some favorites from the Laguna Art Museum.

It can be hard to tear yourself away from the beautiful outdoors when you are in Laguna Beach, California, but a visit to this museum is time well spent.

"The Old Post Office" - Joseph Kleitsch

The way this dog is dashed off is just wonderful. There is so little to it, and it's a very small part of a large painting, yet it anchors and is the focal point of the entire thing.

I painted a daylight scene of Nyes Place in Laguna Beach, California during last year's +Laguna Plein Air Painters Association's Plein Air Painting Invitational. I've been wondering all year how this scene might look as a nocturne due to all of the windows stacked atop each other. This was a quick one, only about an hour and a half, as I was afraid one of the many passing cars that stopped for a look might cause a traffic accident.

"Nyes Night" (oil on linen, 16"x20") is available for sale Saturday at the 20th Laguna Plein Air Invitational Collectors Gala at the Festival of Arts/Pageant of the Masters.

I decided to challenge myself with something different in this plein air painting. I rarely do big vistas, and I struggle with low light painting, but I just couldn't pass up the view at Dana Point Harbor in Dana Point, California.

"Morning Spills Into The Cove" (oil on linen, 18"x24") will be available for sale Saturday at the +Laguna Plein Air Painters Association's 20th Laguna Plein Air Collectors Gala at Festival of Arts/Pageant of the Masters.

+Patrick Saunders painting a sunrise on Dana Point Harbor for the +Laguna Plein Air Painters Association's 20th Annual Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational.

Such an amazing place to catch a sunrise, whether you are painting or not. Thank you Dana Point for the beautiful memories.
