With the fog dissolving the view of Baker Beach in San Francisco, the focus was more on the twisted pine trees in the foreground dressed with dying vines on the left side of the picture. I sketched the white tee-off as this was one of the sections of the Lincoln park golf course. It was interesting to see every other set of players drive home a shot into the Pacific Ocean before they took aim at the green, is that cool for sea life? I am trying out more Holbein watercolors with Winsor and Newton perm. white and Holbein chinese white as opaque additions.

Did you happen to see the French jewelry show at the Legion of Honor?
Some absolutely gorgeous pieces from Lalique and his Art Noveau brethren- and this amazing hand painted fan...just remarkable. If you havent gone- its probably worth seeing- especially if your wife loves diamonds and jewelry as mine does.
Anyhow- your paintings are delightful as usual- all the best.
