I used to live on the Monterey Peninsula and would often frequent Point Lobos State Park. During the Plein Air Convention and Expo, a group of us went out to Point Lobos to paint. It was a glorious day, and there was a couple of mother seals with their babies in the aqua blue water that you see in the foreground of this image. I am hoping that this painting will find a new home, as it is presently at a juried exhibit in Newport Beach, California!
