It os Tuesday and I am starting to feel the exhaustion. These events wear you out.

Went up the the 'Top of the World' to knock out a Californian canyon painting. It was foggy so I ended up with a muted painting.




Then I finished up a previous day's painting after the fog rolled out.




Later in the day I went out to Back Bay near Newport to paint an estuary. While there a couple came by to release a red shoulder hawk and owl that had been nursed back to health. Both were beautiful birds. Here is the owl taking off.



Magnificent.




After that, dinner with a long-term collector. He invited his interior designer to dine as well so she could be introduced to my work. Afterwards I drove back to my host's home and crawled into bed.

Going to paint a foggy beach scene next. Currently have ten paintings in the bag but want sixteen to choose from for the museum.

Time to go to work...

It's fun to see your photos of the area. Not only is Laguna Beach my old stomping ground, but I lived on Newport Beach's back bay for several years. I'm looking forward to seeing all your paintings.
