Art Notes

The serene seaside village of Capitola, just north of Monterey has become a favorite weekend retreat for the Kinkade family. Recently, I set up my easel under a beach umbrella and began to paint. The ancient wooden pier becomes the centerpiece of luminous ocean waters painted gold by the setting sun; tidal pools become silvery mirrors reflecting the glory of this Capitola Sunset. My family dined in comfort that evening at the intriguing octagonal restaurant as I put the finishing touches on my plein-air celebration of our romantic Capitola Sunset hideaway.
