Morning at San Clemente Pier is an oil I painted last year. I started on location, right there on the beach in San Clemente. Then I took it home and finished it in a few more days. It was exhibited in the San Clemente Art Gallery the following month. Today I drove from San Diego to Lake Forest, passing by San Clemente, and its pier. It was a bright, beautiful day. Here in Southern California we often forget how lucky we are to have such a weather in winter, when the rest of the USA is under a heavy blanket of snow.
