On a recent trip to Carmel/Monterey we visited Point Lobos National Park and this was one of the beautiful landscapes we viewed.  Such a magnificent place, I wish I could go back right now....
At the Park you are directed to drive to view points and they are all beautiful, but if you visit be sure to drive to the final parking area from which you can walk to China Cove and a few other beautiful spots.  Be careful not to miss the last stop!

On a recent trip to No. California we drove from Monterey down to Big Sur.  It was a beautiful day and this view was at one of the vista points where we pulled off .  Somehow this lovely tree standing by itself and acting as a lonely sentinel has survived.

I will be starting Art-A-Fair in Laguna Beach soon and am sending out invitations for opening night as well as passes for the entire summer.  If you would like one, please email me with your name and address  I'll get one off to you right away.

I received some comments that it was illegal to photograph or paint this image?  I Googled The Lone Cypress and found dozens of photographs and paintings and comments to the effect that it was OK to photograph and paint it as long as it wasn't a commercial endeavor.  If anyone knows more about this, please let me know.......
