Ad Libs: The world outside (sort of)

Original post made by Rebecca Wallace, arts & entertainment editor of the Palo Alto Weekly, on Jun 25, 2013

Local art of the day: "Poppies With a View," a bright oil painting by Menlo Park artist Alice Weil. It's the polar opposite of the view I see outside my office window right now: gray rainy day, with a distant panorama of the brown summer California hills. Wish we could combine the rain with the green.

The artist is a third-generation Californian who loves to paint under the oaks. And, really, who doesn't. Her work is in a show at the Portola Art Gallery in Menlo Park's Allied Arts Guild through the end of the month, together with a group exhibit on sunflowers.

This painting is so uniquely, intensely Californian. I am not normally a fan of landscapes, unless they are English, but as a California native, this one is irresistible.
