On a recent painting trip to California, I stayed at Laguna Beach. What a gorgeous coastline! I got up early in the morning and started photographing the area. I found these fellows at a nearby park, surfboards propped up, waiting for the next big wave. And apparently the waves came...there were warning alerts out for the area but I don't think it kept these guys from taking advantage of it. This painting is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Judy

For Judy Mudd, creating a work of art means much more than simply reproducing something she sees. “It is more than painting a subject, it is expressing a feeling,” she explains. Judy develops her paintings with thorough reconnaissance work. She goes out on photo shoots in a variety of atmospheric conditions, sketches outdoors, takes notes, and completes color and value studies. From there, back in the studio, she lets the paintbrush guide her. Outside of painting, Judy also runs a real estate business with her husband. In many ways, her work in real estate can be seen via the architectural influences in her watercolors.
