We had frost last night, had to scrape the windshield earlier, but by mid-morning I was painting on the boardwalk. Tourists walked by in flip-flops and bathing suits. People waded close to shore hunting for shark's teeth, a popular sport down here, fossil shark's teeth... not the fresh ones.
Last Friday, I painted at the Venice Art Center portrait studio, elbow to elbow during this busy season, but always a treat painting from life.
