With a long-term goal of painting as much of California’s coast as I possibly can, I end up all sorts of places. Sometimes it’s out on the edge of an offshore island marching off into the distance without a trail to follow, other times it’s being invited to visit some of the more exclusive and pristine stretches behind locked gates. And then there are times for more pedestrian locations like this working class stretch of coast punctuated by a landmark slated for destruction. It’s all part of the game.
