This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
Nature's Temple: the Life and Art of William Wendt (The Irvine Museum) 2008. Glancing through the pages of this beautiful publication, one can see the genius of the artist at work through a broad range of settings. Plein Air Painters of California: The Southland by Ruth Lily Westphal, et al (1982) and Plein Air Painters of California: The North, also by Ruth Lily Westphal, et al.
