  • "Mt. San Jacinto"

         Mount San Jacinto is my favorite mountain where we live.  I grew up going to Idyllwild, the town on San Jac.  When I was small, my father built the Idyllwild elementary school.  Through the years we hiked the trails, ate at a health food restaurant, and when I was a young adult, first learned to sled.

         I have drawn the hill above Hemet, California, in charcoal, pastels, and painted several times in watercolors.  Now this 16" x 20" canvas panel is done in acrylics.  The work started in a class at the Hemet Valley Art Association gallery, and ended up sitting for a number of years during the Covid 19 pandemic.  When classes resumed, I pulled out the composition in order to finish it.  Under the expert guidance of Jack Ragland, I completed my artwork in August of 2022.

         As my friend and art teacher Kathy Pickett described it, she like the "scale" of the mountain.  It looms over what once used to be a retirement community, and is now a bustling, typical southern California city, with clay-tiled roofed, stuccoed houses with palm trees pointing up at the majestic mountain.

         I am happy with my work.  It came out the way I wanted, a feeling of grandeur looking up and as though the art had been painted plein air.  A photograph, even with a zoom lens does not capture the size.

         I am sure that I will do more paintings of the geological feature I love so much, especially one in the winter time, when it is covered in snow.
