Not a still life this time, but a cool small boat painted from Wharf #2 in Monterey, California just down the road from Carmel. Monterey is a proper fishing town (not just a tourist spot) and there are lots of great working boats to see and paint!

As you can see from these last paintings, I have run out of 6x6 Raymar panels and am using 6x8s. A big shipment should be arriving shortly. Meanwhile, here is this nice big roll (or small loaf) from Il Fornaio cut with a really old French picnic knife with an easily sharpened but not easily polished carbon steel blade!

Whoa! It has been ages since I have uploaded a painting! I guess I have just been painting outside all day and have been goofing off at night! Here is one of my favorite flowers. It loves cool spring weather and is great in salad as well as in paintings!

Sometimes I think that the hardest thing about these paintings is getting a decent photograph. This one has those speckles that indicate that there was glare somewhere. It is also out of focus but you should have seen the other 13. With overhead fluorescents, an old halogen torchere, 2 windows and the open garage door...gosh, where would that light be coming from?

A beautiful, somewhat hazy day at Carmel Lagoon! Kids everywhere, flying kites and splashing around in the lagoon while out in the ocean on the other side of the sandbar, the waves were crashing on the shore and out on Point Lobos! A great day to be painting!
