Glistening Sea

I drove around last evening looking for a spot that I could park and paint from the comfort of my car. Yep, it's been windy again and much too treacherous to set up outside. Out on Todd's Point south of Fort Bragg there is a lavish, newly built Victorian house that sits right on the edge of the cliff. What attracted me to this scene though was the roadway leading to the arbor and house and the way the heather and lavender were all back-lit. The icing on the cake was the blinding white gleam on the ocean, and it was hard to look straight into the sun without wearing sunglasses! I took them off to mix colors, so it was on again, off again throughout my delightful little excursion in the front seat of my parked car.
