Falling Meadow, my large oil on canvas painting depicting the iconic Nojoqui Falls made a big splash on the cover of the Santa Maria Sun Weekly Newspaper (February 22 - March 1, 2018). Jayson Mellom was the photographer who captured the moment the painting was being installed on the walls of the Wildling Museum of Art & Nature for the exhibition, The River's Journey. Rebecca Rose wrote the interview that beautifully conveys the passion all of the artists of the Rose Compass as they oversaw the gouache and oil paintings being installed. The exhibition opened February 17 to a capacity crowd. It will run through July 9.
