Yesterday hauled my supplies quite a ways down the trail toward Rockaway beach and began painting around 4:30. I painted until it got dark, and quickly packed up my cart as I was getting devoured by mosquitoes. I finished re-working this painting today since what I had painted in the dark wasn't what I had in mind!

This morning was completely fogged in then cleared around 9:30. I began painting at 10, and by noon the fog completely swallowed the view, ending all possibility of continuing. I'll return to finish on another sunny morning.

Late in the afternoon I headed to Sharp Park to paint outside the golf course. I was joined by a friend, Morning Nichols. We painted until dark.
Painting at this new location brought new challenges of dramatic trees, unnatural golf turf, and dramatic hills, tules, and skies. I learned how difficult it is to successfully compose angular Cypress trees.
