The Amtrak Palm Tree

John Natsoulas Gallery sponsored the California Paint Out. After viewing some of the artists onsite, I signed up.

The Amtrak Train Station is one of the most beautiful areas in Davis. Located just on the outskirts of the main downtown area, the architecture is southwestern – orange and tile roofing. Finding a subject to paint was overwhelming. There is so much to paint! So I focus on one thing that drew me – a palm tree. And right next to it was a bicycle shed.

That evening was the auction. To participate the artists paid $25 and must have a canvas stamped. My husband and I came early but left before the auction ended. The following morning I found out that it sold for over $100. Amazing!
