It was a beautiful summer morning when I set up in the park to paint this scene. I have painted it many times in the past. Powell’s Pt. Park one of my favorite places to both paint and seek solitude. I have to climb up a high perch to view this scene.
While I painted, I could look down at the beach below and also allow my eyes to roam freely across the distant view. Such a peaceful place! I’m really looking forward to painting there again this summer.

Today’s Simple Sketch
Croton or Joseph’s Coat is a new plant to my collection of houseplants. I loved how funky looking this plant was when I spotted it. Tall speckled leaves project upwards, making it a good backdrop for lower plants. It would be a great plant to match with other more common houseplants. Hopefully, it will grow happily in its new home, as I read it can be a tricky plant to grow.
Wishing you a smooth sailing week ahead!
