I clipped a rough watercolor block to my steering wheel and sketched this scene of the San Francisco bay. It was kind of upsetting to see 30 or so haz-mat workers cleaning the rocky shoreline with oil soaked rags in the nearby harbor. Our recent oil spill was a real wake up call about how fragile everything is. The conditions were windy with some sprinkles, so I worked in my mini studio aka the car.

Great mood and colors. Your commitment to painting from life is admirable. The MacGyver-like steering wheel easel was a clever solution.

Hmmm...so you paint during the baby's nap and in your car. I guess I don't have any excuses not to practice.

Thanks for the inspiration!
