Painting in Santa Cruz, Channel Islands
Last weekend we did one of our field trips. Joshua Tree was our destination last year. This year we were fortunate enough to have a friend with a (very nice) boat that offered to take us to Santa Cruz, one of the absolutely beautiful Channel Islands off the coast of Southern California. The trip lasted about an hour, the day was splendid and, more importantly, I didn't get sea sick which would have been a bummer. Once anchored in Scorpion Harbor, we took a small boat to the dock were we had to climb gear in hand. But it was worth it. Recent rains had covered the island in luscious green and the water was calm. My painting, meh. But what a wonderful day anyhow.
