More from Asilomar

After a long day at the mission in Carmel, Kaaren and I came back to Asilomar and walked over to the beach to paint the rocks and the ocean. It was much rougher on Saturday than it had been on Friday, with near gale force winds. The light was quite bright on the water and changed dramatically between 3:30 when I began and 4:30 when I was finishing up; the sea went from greenish blue to a slate grey. I had a little bit of excitement when a gull hopped over and stole my paper towel!


  1. Janice, this piece is so well done, I had to look twice to make sure it wasn't a photo. But indeed, it's a painting, with painterly qualities that I really admire.

    Thanks for the beautiful reception yesterday. Outstanding as we have come to expect from you!

  2. Thanks so much for the kind words, Mary. Kaaren and I were pleased that everyone seemed to enjoy the reception, and many of them stayed until the end! I think this was my most successful painting at the Asilomar Paint Out.
