Ocean Beach Pier, aka Misty’s Home

Ocean Beach Pier Painting San Diego Plein Air

I painted this on Monday or Wednesday. I was trying to be on the OB Pier, but I’m not gifted at navigation and wound up on the wrong street and then I got lazy. An older guy showed me his 49ers tattoo and asked me to name the painting “Misty’s Home” after his dog since this vantage point is her favorite place. So here’s “Misty’s Home.”

San Diego Beach Painting Cabrillo

Painted on location in Cabrillo, on Point Loma. for sale

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.

Here’s mine:

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.
