Just outside the seaside towns of Monterey and Carmel, California, the 17 Mile Drive is one of the most picturesque drives in the state. Established in 1881, it is located within the Pebble Beach community where the famous Pebble Beach golf course and Del Monte Forest are also found. It is a circular route 17 miles long, with 5 entrances that cars can enter upon paying a 10 dollar toll to the guard in the booth. Upon entering the community you are given a map to help explain all of the landmarks you will see along the way. But there are also markers at each ‘highlight’ where you can park, read information and take in the beauty that these stops provide. To ensure you follow the right path, there is a red line down the middle of the road marking the route.
This is marker 6 “The Restless Sea”. It offers a stunning view of Spanish Bay with a rugged rocky coastline. This painting was created to remind me of my first view of the Pacific coast. It truly was a memorable occasion. I can’t wait to visit again.
Beginning December 13, 2014 a selection of original paintings of my Hudson Warren Street series will be exhibited at Valley Variety located at 705 Warren Street, Hudson, NY. I am very pleased and excited about this as it makes this growing body of work accessible to those who love Hudson right on Warren Street. For further details, click on the link below
With the overwhelming success of last years 2014 Warren Street calendar, plans are already in the works for the 2015 issue. The 2015 calendars will be available at Neumann Fine Art 65 Coldwater Street, Hillsdale NY beginning November 8, 2014 in conjunction with the exhibit of all of the original oil paintings. Also, last year we had a list of participating stores where they could be purchased. I’ll let you know as soon as I find out more.
