These two paintings were both done last summer during a weekend trip to Cambrina, the little town just south of Hearst Castle. The bottom one is Moonstone beach  the top is off the deck of the house we stayed in. I set up to paint as the sun set, I did not get to start painting till close to midnight. I had to eat then play some games while my paints were set up and the moon was leaving the sky. Painting in the dark, or near dark is a bit of a challenge, You must know where the paints are on your pallet and still it is always a surprise to see the colors in the morning.

I have a red bar across the top of the page that says ERROR, and the auto save function is failing I'm not sure this will post.
