I was invited to see the view of the coast from this private community today. It did not disappoint.  Also not disaappointing was the hospitality shown by my host, who gave me the tour of the entire coastal estate’s prime views, who sent his kid off on a bike in a successful search for amazing shrimp tacos, and who welcomed me into his home for no other reason than that he liked what I was doing and wanted to open up a few views for me that would have been hard to access any other way. Hero status. Also not disappointing was the inclement weather- the passing showers and threats of rain that came and went but never quite unleashed and allowed this painting to drift to it’s completion unaffected. There was one huge disappointment though. I scraped up the remnants of the previously mentioned shrimp tacos with this rad little travel utensil set my wife gave me as a van-warming gift, and then proceeded to toss the metal fork in the waste-bin afterwards. Nuts!
