San Luis Obispo and "June gloom" by the beach in Encinitas, California

College graduation and a family reunion gave me the opportunity to paint each morning for a week!

Outside sunny San Luis Obispo. 2 views from the same spot, first looking north, second looking south

June in the beach towns near San Diego is foggy "June Gloom",  I have often driven inland to get out of the fog, but decided this time to figure out how to paint the muted color and represent the effect of the fog.

The days in Encinitas were fog bound, but a thinner layer of beach fog at the La Costa Resort gave me a chance to get colorful in the gardens.
