Hi, I’m Christine! I got really bored during the COVID-19 pandemic, and started painting watercolors to break up some of the long stretches of time spent at home. I am passionate about the outdoors, love my dogs, and my grown children would probably do a better job at writing this “about me” section. This is where I plan to do what all the cool kids are doing, and blog here and there about my painting. I’m not going to lie, there will also be dogs once and awhile.
This weekend I was long overdue for some time in the mountains. The Ojai backcountry never disappoints when I need to reset before a new work week! So of course, because it was a wonderful muddy, snowy mess, I was inspired to paint a warm beach sunset.
I recently had a birthday and was lucky enough to spend it hiking with my favorite people. I really love the fall and winter. The rich colors, the moody skies, the way that the sun isn’t trying to actively kill me….
Here’s the winter landscape that was inspired by this gorgeous hike!
