Quiet Sentinels


The last day in Fort Bragg our painting group headed down to the harbor.  A few artists wanted to paint boats and others wanted to head out to the harbor inlet but I decided to find a spot shielded from the wind by a bridge piling.  I took a look around and saw a cypress grove standing majestically on a bluff over the harbor.  The sun was still hiding behind the clouds and the scene was just beautiful.  Once again I chose to use the palette knife.  The colors were very subtle but vibrant all in one.  Being in Fort Bragg made for, "A Painting Day".
