#281 "End of day"

Well I feel like I have dropped off the planet and abandoned my blog...  But just like that I am back.  Speaking of backs, my back has been messed up for the past five week.  I have two bulging discs from golf.  Its been very depressing.  I am going in today for an epidural to receive some of the swelling and help with the pain.
I have been painting some, just not posting.  I just photographed seven freshly pained pieces.  They will be up in the coming days.
On another note my mother is visiting us here in Scottsdale.  It will be her first visit, we are all excited.  I didn't think this day would ever come. What do you know....
This oil sketch will be up for auction at my online gallery,

"17 Mile Drive" #280

I painted this painting from an old photograph I came across from my time at Robert  Louis Stevenson in Pebble Beach, CA.  I think this photo was taken in Pacific Grove, the cutest little town just outside the forest.  When my wife saw this painting, she thought we could move there one day.  But I think it would be too hard for me to leave the 330 days of sunshine in Scottsdale.  Hopefully we can spend a few days there this summer on our RV adventure.
