Summer is here and inspiring some epic beach days here in Santa Cruz! I've been painting some little scenes with watercolor and gouache that reflect the feeling I get when I spend a day at the beach: recharged and vibrant! Here is a watercolor & gouache painting I created to put a little summer in your day!
Big Sur has seen quite a winter, with landslides and rockslides too numerous to count, and with the closing of Pfieffer Canyon Bridge, I am afraid it may be awhile before people coming from Monterey Bay can access our favorite spots like Nepenthe, Post Ranch, Ventana, Deetjins and Esalen. I painted this while meditating on a quick recovery for the road so that the local economy can be up and running again soon.
