Painting At Santa Monica!

I spent a recent morning painting in Santa Monica. This is one of my favorite spots for plein air in LA. If you get there before ten there is nice grass, ample parking, restrooms, and most importantly, a great view! This piece was painted as a replacement for one donated to charity last fall!
Calvin and I set up in the grass!

Lacey loving life!

All finished, and packed.
