Okay I know we just had some horrible flooding but today I wanted to be near the ocean. I walked 10 blocks to and from the gym today and the heat is here. Add to that I walked in work clothes and shoes. This is a scene from Fort Bragg, California that I painted a few years ago.
One of my many flower portraits. I started out with an oil underpainting. After that dried I applied pastel and left some of the underlying stain visible.
