I couldn't resist driving to the end of the road after my Bible study yesterday! What an idyllic homestead.
The Jacarandas are still in bloom. I especially liked them against the blue sky yesterday.
Last Friday as I was snoozing a little later in the morning then usual, I had a dream that I was helping at the school and things just kept coming up, preventing me from me from getting down to the ocean. I looked out the class room door (in my dream) and it was starting to get dark! When I awoke I jumped up and got going. I painted this while under a tree in the cool of the day.

The consensus in the family is there isn't much of a center of interest, especially in the second one, which I worked in the studio using the plein aire as a reference. I like them both and art is very subjective. I was in the middle of another small plein air, where I honed in on the waves and when it was time to add the surfers, they both had paddled in. Another swell is predicted to hit in a few days, so I will get another chance with the surfers. I want it to be Son and Husband, as they had such a great time searching and riding the waves together this week.
Thanks for stopping by, Aloha Ral
