The Peninsula

It was a grey blustery Spring day today, under 70deg. The trees were just beginning to show some color. I sat out at the end of the pier and painted. As much as I enjoy painting in the studio, painting outside with the wind and the waves can't be beat. It is truly enjoyable to Not Paint Green.
In the spring there are subtle shades of reds, pinks and lots of warm greys. Painting is a lot like fishing.( thanks Robert Stark, although I thought of it too) Lots of gear, you're outside in a beautiful spot and sometimes you get one and sometimes you don't. I think I got one today. Some of my earliest memories are of being out on the end of Main Pier watching the ospreys flying over this piece of land. 10x10in oil
