Laurel paints luscious, impassioned landscapes in oils that invite you to share the essence
of California light as she experiences it and to help preserve these treasured places.

This is a "rain painting" (a rain dance with paint)!  Since completing it, we've been getting some rain!  Coincidence?  Power of Positive Thinking?  The Chumash did a rain dance around the same time.  We've all been wanting rain...  

She is focusing on rural, coastal and wild areas of California, particularly
the Central Coast area where she lives.  She cherishes painting outdoors, being intimately involved with the landscape, and with her art helps preserve precious lands.
