California Coast Range


California Coast Range – Oil on 5 x 7 Canvas Panel – Painted 3/20/2010The spring in the California Coast Range Mountains, hillsides and other similar places is alive with millions of wild flowers. The colors mix on the hillsides and move back and forth with the breezes. Purples, greens, yellows and oranges, almost neon in intensity all gather together to form natural bright colored beauty. My wife and I witnessed these natural phenomena over the last few days as we traveled to and from southern California on highways I-5, 46 west to Paso Robles and up in Carmel-Monterey, that day's destination. I would recommend this drive and season to any traveler who has never experienced it. Your comments are welcome.

About rbaker

Russell BakerSacramento, Northern California, United StatesAs a student in northern Minnesota I enjoyed being an artist. My uncle Charles: C. X. Carlson, a noted author, artist and muralist was a great influence me. I sketched and painted everyday until age sixteen or so, then it seemed as though life took over. Now, 40+ years later and retired, I have returned to the more pleasurable pastimes of my youth. This year, 2007, I started drawing, painting and playing music once again. It will be interesting to see where these endeavors guide me and how my skills in turn develop over time. Everything I offer here is an original. Some may be renditions of other works I find interesting, however originals just the same. If you see something you would like to purchase, email me.
