This is the second of the series of two paintings I did last year at the same spot. One looking north, one looking south, from where I was standing at the beach. It was sunny, but windy and cold. I froze my hands painting out there! I was in the Cambria area, north of Santa Barbara. So beautiful!!!
In seeking an answer to a quandary, one must consider the Law of Parsimony, proposed by the English monk William of Ockham: "All things being equal, the simplest solution is the best."
