Debbie Wardrope of Pleasanton, featured at Studio 7 Fine Arts. She paints in wonderful pastels. Beautiful use of color here. She teaches classes as well.
I really like local landscape art that reflects both the various valleys and hills that surround the Bay Area. Our unique climate with chilly air at night during more than nine months of the year and sunshine almost year round makes not only for bountiful grape harvests, but picturesque views as well.
Weather, distinctive topographical features, and sunsets as shown in the painting above, ensure that the inland valleys of California’s central coast will remain a sanctuary for residents, growers, visitors and artists alike.
