The AirBNB in Venice. It was pretty nice.
Painted on location on the dog beach. I will admit the area smelled like urine, as well as sunscreen.
This cat lives around the corner. He comes and torments/ courts my cat, Miss Marmalade, through the windows at night. It fills her with rage, which she takes out on me.
Went to Cabrillo today to paint with my friend Margaret.
This composition is weird. I did not know if this would work, and I’m not 100% sure it does work. But it is what it is. I think as artists we need to try to step outside what is comfortable and push the ‘rules’ or even break all of them while staying inside a particular tradition.
We also learned, from eavesdropping on tourists, that people in Spain are more dedicated about recycling than people in Texas. It’s only hearsay though, so don’t quote me on it.
One more day of heat + fires in the suburbs. The weatherpeople on TV say the weather’s cooling with a shift to a wind off the ocean, which should help the firefighters.
