Now Arriving

"Now Arriving"

The Monarch Butterfly's annual migration to Natural Bridges State Beach in Santa Cruz, Calif. is one of nature's wonders.  They blend in beautifully with the landscape and the colors of the season.  They begin arriving in October and their numbers are at the peak about November and December. They are so beautiful and they look so delicate, but they travel so far!  

I posted that I would share my painting of the CHS graduation, but then I wanted to tweek it some more. it's almost there.  I also decided I want Mr. Perales, the principal of CHS, to be the first to see it.  So after I give it to him, I will post it here.

Salsa Dance

"Salsa Dance"

I think the best meals all start out the the freshest, simplest ingredients.  Painting is like that too I guess, the simple ones are the best. 
I am almost done with the first of the two CHS paintings.  I will probably post it tomorrow or the next day.  It was a challenge, which is a good thing right?

The Road To The Coast

"The Road To The Coast"

This is a painting of the Hecker Pass Highway.  It's the route I take to visit Santa Cruz and the ocean.  It  takes about 40 minutes from my house to see the water, so I have traveled this road more times than I can remember!
