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.
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...
