oil on canvas by ruth Andre
Last week I hitched a ride with my painter friend, Bruce Hancock and traveled north to Fort Bragg and the Mendocino, California coastal towns. We were meeting a group of artists that we have been painting with for the past 7 years. Howard Rees was giving a four day workshop. The wind was just a breeze and the sun was shining as I stood on the butte painting this scene. Up the hill from my painting sight was the Mendocino boardwalk where several of my painting buddies painted the old Victorian shops. The ocean was mesmerizing with its many blues as the waves rushed to shore. Painting along the coast in northern California coast made for, "A Painting Day".
