Carpinteria has some pretty distinct trees and this is definitely one of them :) It's unique shape makes it really fun to draw....although it kind of reminds me of a bad hair day.

It's Zach's birthday today so we're off to the beach! We went for a hike earlier this morning, we were trying to find the great hike that we did a few years ago, but instead we just found a very sunny horrible trail that was filled with bees! We did not bother to finish that hike.

There will be a series of paintings of Lindisfarne this week (a tidal island off of the North East coast of England). I found these old photos and remembered how beautiful it was that day that we visited.
The "Holy Island" has an interesting history, if you want you can read more about it here
