Sierra Side Painting

After spending all day storyboarding action and drama, taking two hours to paint a landscape where nothing happens is pure self indulgence.  Ok,got it out of my system, back to work.

Fleet Week beach day

Spent the weekend with the boys at the beach. Its fleet week and the air show was pretty inspirational. Here is a little watercolor I did of the Blue Angeles screaming past Crissy Fields.

Beach Break

Sitting at a desk too long. All my day dreams are about salty air and large swell rolling in. Need to find my way back to the water.
