This work was completed during a 2016 Artist-In-Residence with the Angeles National Forest. I spent a week plus painting in and around Little Jimmy Trail Camp, located in the eastern part of the San Gabriel Mountains at about 7,500′ elevation. I spent more than one day painting atop Mount Islip, a short walk up from the camp and with a 360-degree view at about 8250′. I chose my view depending on the time of day.
This work records the layered atmosphere looking southwest towards the ocean, more than 50 miles away. From this high elevation, one is above the marine layer sitting on the coast. Islands offshore poke through the clouds.
