About This Painting
San Felipe Lake sneaks up on you. You turn a corner and Boo! there it is. It’s just a bit southeast of Gilroy proper along Pacheco Pass Rd.
Somewhat humorously, nearby this Gilroy lake is the town of Aromas — I wonder what connection there is to its next-door neighbor Gilroy being the garlic capitol of the world.
As I rounded the corner, heading south on CA SR-152 one day recently looking for scenes to paint, this came into view, and it was all I could do to pull over on the one, small turn-off and not spill my morning coffee.
This is painted more abstractly than I usually paint since I wanted to capture the airbushy blends in ‘chunks of color’ instead. ◙
