Located in Oceanside, California, this old mission stands tall and is a thing of beauty. I would love to paint all the California missions but that will probably never happen. Instead, I pick a mission now and then to paint and that keeps me happy. I have visited several of the California missions and walking through these wonderful old structures truly makes one feel the history. I love them.

This cute little dog lays its head flat on the floor as it appears it is being scolded. Even though it is in trouble, the dog's big eyes and sad look will get it out of trouble—and he knows it. Ink and watercolor.

This is a recent painting of Manzanita Lake with Mt. Lassen in the background. At this time of the year, Mt. Lassen should be covered with snow as should this lake area. The snow has not come yet. The ground is dry, the underbrush is orange and brown and the evergreens are very thirsty. Colder and snowy weather is predicted soon. Let’s hope we get lots of snow and colder weather as we near the beginning of winter. Ink and watercolor.
