Laguna Beach

Storm Coming, Laguna Beach. 6 x 8" oil on primed heavy bamboo paper.

This was done in March, with a fellow painter who is a dear friend and former student.  Clear sky and sunshine at the start, then the wind picked up and a huge storm emerged.  Rain started just as we wrapped up, and was torrential by the time I was driving home.

My husband and I stayed with a friend in San Diego before my artist residency at Whiskeytown.  During this time, in addition to the very enjoyable outing in Laguna Beach, I also painted the portrait shown below of our friend's beloved toy poodle:
