Off the Grid

A plein air painting of Cooper point between Andrew Molera and Pfeiffer Beach on the Big Sur coast of central California

Artwork Notes:

A cove not easily reached. A wild country. The government here stalks on four paws and the cities are made of gray sticks full of poison. And life goes on, even off the grid.

-Matt Beard
