The following 8 paintings are from recent trips to Malibu's "El Matador Beach". I painted there for a week trying to capture the character of this unique part of our California coastline. This is a wonderful spot for Plein Air painting, it offers a number of boulders and rocks everywhere, all shapes and sizes. It is particularly beautiful at sunset as the cliffs turn warm orange and the ocean gets tinted in purples and pinks. Lots of photographers and movie makers go there to shoot.

The following paintings are inspired from my 2007 trip to Bulgaria. I had a great time visiting family and friends and of course looking for interesting subjects to paint. Although Bulgaria has become quite modern now, I was still able to find some rural villages up in the mountains where life is somewhat primitive. Some of the places I had a chance to visit were Boazat, Batoshevo, Apriltzi, Sevlievo, Balchik, Nesseber and Triavna. I took lots of photographs and completed the paintings as soon as I got back in the US.
