I was going to insert a photo of an finished painting, but I forgot to take pictures — well, you’ll just have to come see them! Here’s a detail of another unfinished one.

a start for Epperson Paint Out

I went back to Cavallo Point to start a new painting for the Epperson Paint Out, going on this week. This is the sketch so far – I’m thinking of ditching the bridge – it’s usually so corny and overdone! Maybe I’ll hide it with more tree foliage.


The fog was drifting in through the golden gate when I started, but the warmth of the day drove it out and theb it was gone. I hiked up the hill and ate my sandwich on the trail.
