|Davenport, 30 x 22, pastel on BFK|
But, there are times when I still feel like a California girl. I hum tunes from the Beach Boys, check the surf reports, and paint California subjects. Like today.
Just north of Santa Cruz, Davenport sits on beautiful cliffs above the Pacific Ocean. I stood in this spot, several years ago, with a group of friends and watched the waves crash. The wind was so strong that we didn't dare pull out our painting gear, but we saw evidence of painters there before us. One tree stump was covered in daubs of oil paint.
I may be a de facto Washingtonian, but today I feel more like a California girl.
Beach Boys "Good Vibrations." Obviously.
