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 through the end of the month, together with a group exhibit on sunflowers.
