This spot along the Sunset Cliffs used to be a rock arch that collapsed during high seas a few months back.
We used to live up the hill from here in Hillcrest. It’s a great area.
Seen from a few floors up in downtown San Diego.
I thought of this as “No Parking” but I guess the red diamonds are really a “Don’t Crash Down this Cliff” warning.
I’ve been painting the cliffs a lot recently, it’s been my mood.
Painted on location from Point Loma.
Painted on the cliffs.
By a dumpster up the street.
I painted this a few weeks ago, but it was a study for a wedding gift and I didn’t want to spoil the surprise. 8 x 13 inches, oil on linen.
Lots of things happen on the cliffs. On the week I painted this there were two cliff rescues, with fire trucks and big winches. There was someone cliff diving and tourists taking pictures of it. There was a delivery of a classic corvette to a beachfront mansion. A street was closed off for a gas leak you could smell for blocks. And painting happened.
Painted on the beach in Coronado.
