"Pigeon Point" California, coastal, plein air painting by Robin Weiss

"Pidgeon  Point"   7x11 oil on panel   $300
In the afternoon Maury and I headed down the beach to paint the lighthouse from a different perspective.



Mo painting at Pigeon Pt.
The Pigeon Point lighthouse was built in 1871 to guide ships up the Pacific Coast. It remains the tallest lighthouse on the west coast.

After we had our fill of the lighthouse and the California coast, Maury and I headed inland to see the great Redwoods.. After a long day of painting we camped at a spot not far from PP . It was a nice break to get some laundry done and visit with a new friend Tony Barros at the Costanoa KOA campground. One of the nicest KOA's I have ever stayed at!

Next morning after I tried a quick painting we headed towards San Jose to look for a mission to paint. That didn't happen but we did find a spot off the road to paint the live oaks in a pasture off the road.

"Live Oak"  8x6 oil on panel




The next day Maury was headed home to Seattle from San Jose airport and our painting adventure together came to an end. 

My plan was to continue on to Yosemite National Park. By myself for the first time on this journey I was already missing my family but beautiful country and van breakdowns would keep me well distracted!
