Del Valle Spring

Lake Del Valle is the centerpiece of a beautiful regional park just south of Livermore in the San Francisco Bay Area. On the first sunny day after weeks of rain the lake sparkled with reflected color. It was a joy to paint in this lovely, peaceful location.

I started this one at the lake, but ran into some problems and decided to let it rest for awhile. After looking at it with fresh eyes this week I was finally able to pull it together.  Each painting is a puzzle!

The Carquinez Bridge frames a sparkling bay view from 9th Street Park in the lovely waterfront town of Benicia, California, just around the bend from San Francisco.
