Two Views of Point Reyes

Tomales Point Collagescape, mixed media on board, 8”x10”

One of the best parts of living in San Francisco is having the Point Reyes National Seashore in our backyard.  It’s one of my favorite places to runaway too.  I have photographed it and painted it many times. 

My two latest pieces in my new series, Collagescapes, are both of Point Reyes.  The first is Tomales Point at the north end of the peninsula.  It’s the color of November, the elk, the grass, the lichens on fence posts and the old dairy farm, Pierce Point Ranch.  The second piece is Point Reyes, the actual point at the south end of the bay that protects Drakes Bay to the east with the lighthouse at the point.  The red is the color I call Coast Guard Red, the color of the roofs mixed in with the rust, the lichens and the rocks.  Then there are the bright greens that emerge in February after the rains help usher in the California Coast’s early Spring.
