Triton Museum of Art and the 48th Annual Member Show, Santa Clara. Thursday, October 29, 2015

With a low sun angle and a bright blue sky there were many stark sun vs.shade contrasts and razor sharp shadows on both of the two relocated historic houses on the Museum grounds.  The redwood grove is always a challenging subject and the deciduous trees are starting to change colors which couldn't help but to draw our eyes to them.   Then, after lunch, we were able to see the 48th Annual Member Show in the Rose Shenson Community Art Gallery.     All in all, a satisfying paint site.
