From Mount Helix Park

We painted this morning from the top of Mount Helix Park, a lookout just east of the city of San Diego. I stood looking north across the industrial part of El Cajon. The patterns the warehouses made complimented the patterns of the hills rising to the mountains. And in turn, the verticalness of the residential area just below contrasted nicely with the horizontal movement of the hills and buildings.

I wanted to capture it all but had to simplify the scene to capture the overall feeling I had as I looked down on the city.

    I never saw this view as I only went there to “park” at night.
