I got a call early this morning from Rudy (my cute fireman) telling me he can't come home because he was put on 'mandatory' because of the fires in the Big Bear,Ca area. We were supposed to leave for a week at the beach today. After my last week, I was so looking forward to it. We try and go often; parking our little trailer on the bluffs at San Clemente and settling in for a few days to relax and enjoy the ocean. But hopefully not all is lost and we can get up and go tomorrow! So for today I just want to share a sketch I did last year around this time. I have my favorite bench to sit on where I watch the sunset into the dark blue ocean as I sip my wine and sketch....yes, I can do both at the same time.

    Marta: I love your S&T and I love the ocean. When I take the amtrak from Anaheim to Solano Beach, my ride takes me by San Clemente, and that beautiful sight! Thanks for your comments on my post!!

  3. Wanda Says:

    PS: You have inpsired me to get a Winsor & Newton sketchbook and carry it with me. I need to also pick up a "small" watercolor set, as mine is to big to lug around.
