Since I grew up in a military family we moved around a lot. 3 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, 2 high schools around the US and in Japan. Monterey, CA was the 2nd place and that’s why I wanted to paint the landscape here.
Big Sur by Bixby Bridge.
From the series, Nostos. Growing up in a military family, I lived in many places as a child. Monterey was the second one, and that’s why painting Big Sur was meaningful to me.
Painted on location on a perfect La Jolla day. This is just down from the Children’s Pool.
Painted in OB a few weeks back on a windy gray day.
Here’s a picture of its brother, painted in the same spot after the day had brightened a little:
A nice, relaxing morning painting at the beach.
Painted last year.
