I haven't been out much due to a tremendous commercial art workload. Today I did get to beautiful location with my beautiful daughter Kate. While I set up to paint she took off and explored the beach. She disappeared around the point for over an hour. When she returned, her long curls tangled and cheeks flushed, she had stories of an adventure involving a turkey vulture, a perilous creek crossing and the gorgeous scenery that 'I just had to see'. What a delight to see my daughter who is usually not far from her cell phone, her friends or computer have such an adventure on her own - out in nature. Beautiful.
