I decided to go to El Matador State Beach Park in Malibu. I figured that walking down and then back up the hideously steep cliff with my paint pack on my back would be great exercise. At the top of the cliff I was a bit worried because the wind was blowing and blowing wind and sand does NOT make for a great painting. However, by the time I hiked to the beach and walked all around the wonderful rocky outcroppings to choose my spot, I found the place sheltered enough to enjoy a picture perfect day. The sky was clear except for a few wispy clouds, and it wasn't too cool. The beach was gorgeous.
I found the time just flew by as I tried to weave the magic before me into the painting. I am so glad I was there.
