I found a bit of shade on this hot sunny morning to stand in while painting this view of the Granary building. The little umbrellas are sheltering the other students who were painting along the river.

I painted this little study while standing out on the long dock at China Beach in Marin on a very windy morning. I like to call this little island 'Cupcake Island' rather than the name its known by- 'Rat Island'. Not sure why- it looked like a cupcake to me. I was trying to get the sense of distance and light. I'm pleased with this little study.

The view is of the cove and distant land formations at  China Beach in Marin on a June afternoon.  I was working on getting the layers of atmospheric distance and making an interesting composition.
