|"Carmel by the Sea" 6x10 oil on panel Sold|
|Ann reading at the Portola|
Mean while back at the convention there was more great demonstrations and good times talking with fellow artists. Ann, being the great painting companion that she is, relaxed in the beautiful foyer of the Portola Hotel waiting for me to get going.

I was excited about our next location because I have never been to Carmel.
We found a spot off the road without doing too much exploring anxious to get a painting going. Of course everyone else was at the beautiful Carmel River Park which I knew nothing about...
Well into the process someone stopped and asked, if I knew the car I was painting was a Tesla! ...Cool!

|"Asilomar Surf" 10x10 oil on panel Sold|
The next location we went to paint was Asilomar beach not too far from the hotel. Everyone told me it is a windy beach most of the time and this day was no exception. There were hundreds of artists on the beach painting but it seems I always pick a spot away from the congestion. I had trouble with the wind so you can see my solution in the video..

|Pescadero Beach 9x12 oil on panel sold|
The drive through Washington state was just a rainy blur but when we crossed the Oregon border things started to shape up and the sun started to break through.
I didn't do my first painting (above) until we reached the California coast but we had some fun adventures along the way...and the sun did come out ..finally!
