A thick misty drizzle started to fall over the Persidio today at lunch. It was nice to have a little rain after such a long dry spell. I set up my easel under a big old oak and huddled under my umbrella just behind the post office parking lot. This is looking north towards the old military hospital.
Fun fact this corner is also a well fought over Pokemon go gym
A plein air study painted at the Robert Young Estate.
My boy Wiley and and I hiked up the hill behind my Grandmas house to do a little painting. It was blisteringly hot and we only lasted about 1.5hrs before we melted. Wiley was a champ, he painted for about twenty minutes then for the next hour shared an in-depth thesus on the pros and cons of different Minecraft hacks. We had a great time.
Looking west over Alexander Valley. This is a plein air painting I made in the family vineyards. We were experiencing a heat wave that day and I started melting after three hours in the sun, so I painted what I could then turned tail and retreated to a swimming pool. A few days later I cleaned it up in the home studio.
I found an old comic of mine from freshman year at USC. If I recall correctly a party we had in the dorms was broken up by RA’s “residential advisers” and campus police “DPS”, so I lampooned it in the school paper, the daily Trojan. This strip was probably only funny if you were there, and high.
