Miramar Morning - 8x10

I knew I wanted to paint this scene, but it was a little bit awkward because there was a guy that kept standing on his patio in tiny underwear.  That's what I get for being out so early I guess.

Morning Shadows II - 10x20

I liked the smaller version of this scene so much I knew I had to paint a larger one as well.  Something about early morning sunlight is so invigorating, I think it's my favorite time of day.

Beach Houses, Sunset - 6x12

This turned out better than expected it to! I love when that happens.  

I'm a little frustrated at all this gloom we've been having.  I love to paint things either at dawn or at dusk...and it's cloudy at both those times! The sun comes out (a little) from 3:00-4:30... that doesn't really help me.  Maybe today will be better.
