This is a bird sanctuary where the lagoon runs through sand dunes to the sea. This was done quickly, with high wind and a large flock of seagulls practicing take-offs and landings. I put this in the opening show of Fingado Art Gallery, which opens tonight, for the gallery walk on Stockton St, in El Cerrito- 7-10 p.m.

I painted this amazing tree on the grounds of Asilomar in Pacific Grove, California. This was my second trip there to be part of 'the artists round table'. A very affable group of artists share a lodge, and have evening critiques there for a week in June, and its been going for about 30 years.
The numbers of these particular pine trees seem to be dwindling. I haven't learned if it is just the normal end of their life cycle, or a result of climate change.

These were unusually large Meyer lemons given to us by a friend. They are somewhat sweet and best picked from local trees, and they make wonderful lemon curd. I like the deep yellow color with this blue bowl.
