Abstract Views of Tustin, the City of Trees

The city of Tustin is filled with unique homes, gorgeous gardens and parks, a lovely downtown, and tremendous civic pride. One of the best things about our City of Trees exhibition with the Tustin Art League is all the varied views and interpretations of our familiar town. Take a look at these abstracted renderings of our fair city; we're sure you've never seen Tustin in this light before!

Nature's Garden, Peter's Canyon; Watercolor on Yupo by Marsha Lindsey

Marsha Lindsey's softly striking watercolor of Peter's Canyon is gorgeous in person, glowing with an inner light.
