Irish Coffee

A painting of the view overlooking Irish Beach on a clear morning on the Mendocino coast of northern California

Artwork Notes:

A quick family getaway. An early morning stumble across a cow pasture. A desperate and failed effort not to spill my coffee while being distracted by this beauty. A fleeting glimpse of my wife jogging on the beach beneath the first light of day. How does she do that at this hour? I can barely walk.
