Although this painting has a Spanish name it is from a small waterfall somewhere near Sonora Pass. A seasonal creek during one of California’s wet winters. It’s amazing to me to see how rich and diverse the color of water can be. Most of my California Landscapes are started outside and finished in my studio so I push the color until I recapture the feeling I originally had when I chose to begin the painting. When I get that “yes” feeling I know the painting is finished.
