Watercolor of the day ~ Cannery Row House

Cannery Row House ~ Watercolor by John Klobucher

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s a little Art of Lore

Not long ago on a trip to Monterey on the northern California coast, I came upon this small historic shack in the area called Cannery Row, which John Steinbeck made famous in his classic novel. I decided to move the little house for this watercolor, situating it in a spacious autumnal setting with a bright optimistic sky and a color palette inspired by Van Gogh.

I wonder if anyone is home…

Watercolor of the day ~ Monterey Lore

Monterey Lore #1 ~ Watercolor by John Klobucher

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s a little Art of Lore

If you drive south for a couple of hours from San Francisco along California’s picturesque Pacific coast, you’ll find Monterey, the historic seaside stop made famous in John Steinbeck’s classic novel, Cannery Row. I was there not long ago and discovered this nostalgic scene — a makeshift fishing shack perched precariously over the bay’s blue waters. The shack’s corrugated steel walls and rusty roof harken back to those old sardine canning days when the folk here had rough hands and rougher manners.

If you listen real close, you might still hear ’em…
