My friend, Lynne Fearman, has been kind enough to let me use several of her pictures on Support4Change. She has been especially generous with her pictures for this feature of Stepping Into Pictures aka, A New Perspective on Relationships feature.

Like several others, this was done in the Plein-air style of painting on site. It appeals to me because this trail is in the San Gabriel mountains that are a few blocks from our house. I have done many miles in the lovely canyons that look just like this one.

On her website lynnefearman.com, you can check out other paintings she has done using this technique, where she, and other artists, set down their easels and translate the scene around them into lovely paintings.
