The California Coast

— Marcia Burtt, “Carmel Coast,” acrylic, 10×18 in.

May 19 through July 16, 2017

“The California Coast,” features twenty plein-air paintings by Marcia Burtt that document the state’s western edge from Mendocino to San Diego.

This panoramic display is a unique opportunity to view the changes in topography from north to south on one wall. Coastlines facing west interspersed with our local south-facing coast offer views left, right, and out to sea from rocks, sand, eroding bluffs, sloughs, and beach towns. Changing weather, tides, and time of day transform light and color on sea and land.

Burtt’s loose, big-brush realism nails a specific time and place without too much detail, allowing viewers to bring their own experience to complete the paintings.

Lovely beaches, beautiful paintings and big brushes in Florida!


While on the walls at L’Auberge in Sedona, these paintings have vanished:






I lent these paintings to L’Auberge in 2007 where I believed they would be seen and be sold to visitors to this lovely hotel.

A year ago I realized it was time to get the paintings back, but when I contacted the manager I was told the paintings were not there and he could not help me.
He no longer returns my phone calls or emails.

Please help! If you see any of these paintings I’d appreciate knowing where they are now.
