Painting the Zanja #3

"Zanja at Grove" 9 x 12 on canvas panel

So sorry for the lapse in my weekly blog. 23 days ago I came down with a cold which escalated into a sinus infection. Boy has this taken a toll on me. I have been busy with some studio works and have managed to get a little something done each day.

Painting the Zanja as you may recall from a previous blog is a paint out event put on by the Redlands Art Association and the Redlands Conservancy Redlands Conservancy CITRUS HERITAGE COMMITTEE. This is my 3rd painting. I had hoped to paint more but with being sick that put quite a damper on my getting out and painting on location the past few weeks. Yesterday a group of us met at one location out near Mentone. After looking it over we all decided it was not a location that we were interested in painting. We moved onto another location to find that it really wasn't something any of us wanted to paint. Well third time is a charm. I suggested we go down by the University of Redlands. The Zanja runs south of the University and the tree lined streets in themselves are always a painting waiting to happen. I took off after we parked our cars and walked quite a ways. As I turned back to start walking towards my car I noticed this lovely scene. The way the light was hitting the large Eucalyptus, the old broken down bridge that goes over the Zanja and I loved the hole that gave way to the vista that included some beautiful palms with mountains in the distance.

After painting the area we all joined for a wonderful lunch at Macaroni Grill. What a way to spend the day!

Until next time, ENJOY THE ART! Terry d. Chacon
