Indian Summer at Pedro Point with POPS

Today 4 POPs painters worked at Pedro Point in the heat. We were so involved in our work that we didn't break for lunch until 1:30!

Indian Summer Harvest Moon Evening

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!

Pedro Point on a Wintery Day

This Saturday the wind calmed down so I headed to the beach to see what appealed to me for painting. I decided to painting at Rockaway beach. Today the ocean is full of energy and force, and the wet sand pocked from activity.

Thursday at Pedro Point

Today I returned to Pedro Point to finish my painting started on Tuesday. It's a cool, clear, windy autumn day. Edwin Bertolet of POPS was the only other painter, and we painted together, and discussed our work.

Painting at Pedro Pt. with Peninsula Outdoor Painters (POPS)

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.

Painting at Sharp Park Golf Course

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.

Western Rockaway Beach

October 1st, a calm day, had a nice surfing swell and changing skies as a front moved in.
