What a great five days we had in Carmel painting on the coast along Highway 1.  My artist friend, Linda Mutti, and myself, for the most part had beautiful weather.  We painted twice at Pt. Lobos State Park, once at Rocky Point, and once on Carmel Valley Road.  There were 60 artists juried into the festival from all over the country…a lot of talent for sure.   It was great to see some old friends from other festivals, and meet many new artists.   Linda and I came home with a lot of studies and photos to do some larger paintings.   I especially want to paint the one from Rocky Point in a large piece….I’ll let you know when it is done and on my website.
