One Last Day In Long Beach

This is our last day in Long Beach. We began (like all other days) with a walk on the beach. It was blowing cold and raining off and on, but we braved the elements to hike north from the condo. Just when the sky darkened alarmingly we decided to turn around and return. Wouldn’t you know that about the time we arrived at the condo the sun came out and it has been sunny and rainless ever since. The forecast was for rain and thunder all day!

Anyway, the changing weather created some nice light and the dunes were as picturesque as always.

I have been doing some art as well. Continued work on Ukestra Seattle logo art occupies most art time, but I have been practicing using pastels. This is one beach scene I did after one of our walks.

Now it’s time to begin packing. Home tomorrow.


About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    Beautiful painting Paul. Nostalgic scenes of Long Beach as well; reminds me of the beach near Otaru, Hokkaido, looking out at the Japan Sea..
