Our last day at PACE17, San Diego began with a beautiful sunrise.
Our final day of the Plein Air Convention was an all-paint day, and we spent it at the Cabrillo National Monument on Point Loma. What a fabulous place — with the bay on one side, the ocean on the other, a lighthouse, the cityscape, and all the interesting flora and fauna — there was endless painting potential here!
I took some time to explore, first at the upper portion…
The view on the clifftop looking west toward the Pacific Ocean was breathtaking, the breeze was refreshing and invigorating too — the perfect spot to paint!
Then I went down to the lower part, still facing west toward the ocean. Along the way I ran into my friend Kathleen Reilly, whom I know from Osmosis Gallery in Niwot, Colorado. She seemed to be having a great time!
Back at the hotel, I couldn’t resist painting this beautiful California sunset from my balcony to bring this unforgettable day to a close.
