Crystal Cove Icon

Finally we have some winter weather here in Southern California and the promise of "Rain".
For me the idea of rain has become utterly exotic. We've seen nothing but mists and low fogs this past year, or maybe at most a half hour of sustained moisture that the most optimistic among us may have called rain, but which was in reality just very heavy drop-lets, not drops, of wetness. As a farewell, briefly perhaps, to our standard sunny day, I painted this view of the iconic neon sea green shanty at Crystal Cove and the umbrellas at the outdoor restaurant across the path. This I will keep in reserve to show at the Crystal Cove Gallery & Gift shop where those of you who live in the area can see my work from January through March next year.
