Sometimes I’m asked to do a painting from a particular place that is special and has great personal significance. This in turn gives me an opportunity to paint in some amazing places. This is one of them. I have painted Ruby Island many times and from many angles, even from on it , but this particular view is from private land and is not one I would ever normally have the opportunity to paint. Thanks Sara and Tom, and The Olive Grove for letting me get my trailer down there on their nice new lawn!!
