Painting the Zanja

The Redlands Conservancy is partnering with the Redlands Art Association for an upcoming Plein Air Exhibit. "Along the Banks of the Zanja" is the theme for the show this year. There are 8 sites in all and the work must be turned in by Nov. 21 with a reception on Nov. 22. I have painted in this Plein Air event the last 3 years. It is always fun to paint the wonderful nature and historic buildings in Redlands so I look forward to this event each year.

Yesterday a group of Plein Air Artists from PAAR met up at Sylvan Park in Redlands, CA. I spotted this lovely scene as we walked the Zanja that runs through the park. The beautiful stone walkway bridges and the lovely foliage that line the banks of the Zanja are so beautiful. This particular scene grabbed me by the profuse light behind the bridge and the speckled light all around peaking through the huge trees that surround this beautiful Redlands Park.

Until Next Time, ENJOY THE ART! Terry d. Chacon
