I find inspiration from any body of water- especially the Pacific Ocean as I live in San Diego. A sweet December afternoon as the sun was so brilliant and the ocean waves whispered sweetly in the background. And yes I wear my Cubs hat whenever I'm in the sun- as it is a dear memory of my days in Chicago. Oh and my favorite jeans are a must for my outdoor ocean paint sessions. A small detail- my Mother never leaves the house without her toes painted and I follow suit. I love to paint by the ocean as it is one of the calmest spaces to create in - a dream for an artist like me.
