My work ethic has come to a standstill or so it would seem. I went to the studio, took a look for more pigs to paint and then decided to just play and paint another palette knife landscape. I had started this painting while on the Fort Bragg trip. The group of artists I was with all met in Mendocino to paint for the day. I was standing by the Mendocino Museum, an old house beautifully preserved. What a marvelous view the long ago owners had from this old home. I painted the hedge of Cypress trees that made a buffer from the sea breezes. The view showed just a glimpse of the sea. Enjoying the Mendocino shoreline made for, "A Painting Day".
