"Sunset Crystal Cove" 6 x 8 oil on canvas by Terry d. Chacon
I am hoping that this will work out. My computer is being redone and I am using my husbands laptop. Boy the joy of figuring everything out and not having the software you are used to using can be very aggravating.
On Wed. Patricia Rose Ford and I went to King of Frame (the best framer around) to pick up some framing that was being done of the painting and poster for Santa Barbara Kennel Club. See my last post for more on this. After picking up the beautifully framed pieces and visiting with Randy and Terry we took off for Laguna Beach. We have not painted the Montage in a few years and I was longing to go back and try again. We grabbed a quick bite at our new favorite Italian Restaurant and headed off the the Montage. Parking is always awful this time of year in Laguna and today was no different. We ended up parking on the main street and walking to our site to paint.
"The Keyhole" 9 x 12 oil on canvas by Terry d. Chacon
The Keyhole has been a favorite artist point to paint in Laguna since the early 1900's and still is one of the favorites.
After painting at the Montage, which I think the room rates start around $500.00 a night, http://www.lagunabeachmontage.com/ we headed back up the coast to find a special place for a sunset painting.
Do you know that all of the openings to the beach along this area are ran by the state. It is $15.00 a car to just go in, whether you stay or not. So we had been to one of the spots at a previous workshop with Jeff Horn and decided to go there. After walking down to the beach in 2 different spots we liked the 3rd spot the best. Good thing as the sun was sinking fast. We hurried to set up and capture the essence and beauty of the late evening light.
Until next time, ENJOY THE ART! Terry d. Chacon
