Heading to California for a Month of Painting

Traffic on the Golden Gate Bridge
It was hard to leave Deer Isle in the height of summer but I could not turn down the opportunity to cat sit for  friends for a month at the Sea Ranch in California.

 I have wanted for a couple of years to spend time on the coast of California painting so their offer was an answered prayer.  
I am drawn to the coastal Oaks.

A Month of Pastel Workshops

Elaine paints Mariners Park.

The month of July was  four pastel workshops nearly back to back .

The weather was wonderful for painting plein air.

Mary Beth, Anne and Kate painting at Connary Cove

 Ann captures Lazy Gut Island.

Dawn and the fruits of summer.

The wonderful hat the Intensive group made for me.  

A marvel of newspaper and tape and symbols of everything I had been talking about that week!
