I was supposed to go a lot further today. I didn’t get past this point though. After a few hours in the water, laughing at the hypnotic little waves spinning down the point, I knew I was going to paint here as well. Passing showers were visible on and off in all directions as the sun took it’s turn hiding behind the clouds. Every once in awhile a window of light would fall in such a way that made everything seem timeless- as though the surfers and their park rangers and the tourists and the railroad barons, and the cattle ranchers, and the Mexican land owners, and the Spanish elites, and the chumash who lived in a small village right here after crossing the rainbow bridge were all seated silently, just out of sight from one another admiring the same beautiful scene.
