We’ve hiked a lot at Sunol Regional Wilderness Park in Alameda County located eastern San Francisco Bay Area in Northern California. Next to going to the ocean, this is one of my very favorite places to go to with it’s beautiful rolling hills laced with hiking trails for both visitors and cows.

I love doing this type of geometric work. The challenge here was trying to keep it painterly within the structured shapes. The heavy bodied paper that I used drinks every bit of moisture making it a constant struggle to get any paint movement to reveal itself. I do love the light open feel in the end. Diebenkorn, you are the master. If you were still here today, I would be stalking you.
