Painting on the CA Coast

This week I'm in San Francisco, visiting my twin brother Don. After 11 straight days of rain, we finally got a beautiful sunny day. I painted two paintings at the coast in Half Moon Bay. This one was done near the Sea Horse Ranch. These trees are typical of the flora near the beach. I liked how each tree was slightly different from its neighbor and the distant hills were cloaked in a mist of ever moving low clouds. This painting is titled "Coastal Trees" and is 16" x 20".

First Blog from Ron Donoughe

I'm a regional painter based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but I also live and paint in the Cambria County area between Altoona and Johnstown. Recently I just completed a large series of plein air paintings done in Indiana County for an upcoming exhibition. This show will be held in March at the Indiana University of PA (IUP) Museum in conjunction with my twin brother Don.

This show will contain over 80 small landscape paintings done in and around Indiana County. Here are a few examples of this work.
