After a day of plein air painting, I walked through this field underneath the ridges of these hills near San Juan Capistrano. The sun warmed the landscape, washing the trees and brush with tones of red and gold. The lights of the city sparkled in the background between the trees. In the painting, I wished to create the same warm feeling I experienced there , when looking at the lights of home, beneath a comforting, awesome sky.
