Wave Pattern

Last time we were in the Central Coast of California, we walked on the San Simeon Pier, such a beautiful day, winter in California! I was excited by the patterns of the waves below us & shot a few pics. I am planning on doing a series called Patterns in Nature. Here's the first!

Future Paintings

I was a little disapointed as I arrived in Ventura yesterday to take some big wave photos. It was a little overcast & the turquoise water was not shining through like it can. I took a bunch of photos anyway. Here are the best. It will be a challenge to tone down my usual vivid tomes & work in a softer palette.

Website up & running!

What a great day, allot of fun & we each came away with a beautiful new website!
Here's mine:
