An escape to an imaginary forest was in order on this rainy day.This is a small format (5x7 inch) watercolor/gouache study for a possible larger oil painting. Turner, Fragonard and the Dutch School are kept in mind.

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.
