San Francisco and Montara

I just returned from my trip to SF for the Wondrous Creatures show and some plein aire painting in Montara. It was a refreshing break to focus on painting. I packed my kit and scrambled around rocks and tidepools, looking for interesting subjects. I painted for as long as the light allowed and then returned to the beach house, tired, yet happy. I love the landscape, so majestic and timeless. I had such an amazing time and can't wait to return.
