Okay, here is a heroic story. Plein Air Thursday is a group I co-host. On St. Patrick’s Day in 2022, the location was Marina Park, located in Ventura California. Sounds great so far right? It was, I got there with all of my gear and stepped out of my truck’s cab and was startled by how cold and windy it was. I live in Fillmore and the temperature was a warm 82 degrees, what happened? 

I put on my black cap, blue woolen jumper and my canvas apron and headed out. I was glad to see another painter there, Sheri Garwood. That always bolsters my spirits, not painting alone.

We joked around and walked towards the ocean. As we got closer to the water, the wind really started picking up, to the point where I was leaning into the wind to walk. We found Yvonne Cherbak. She had already set up and was creating her watercolor painting on the beach. 

We stayed because the scene was drop dead gorgeous. 

The ocean was a churned up silvery green and violet with an orange fog bank rolling in. It was breathtaking. Wave after wave was rolling in on top of each other, I think it has to do with the way the beach is set up between two rocky jetties.

I set up next to Yvonne and every once in a while we would yell back and forth to each other, otherwise we couldn’t hear each other above the wind and the crashing waves. 

There is something about painting through the elements that is very rewarding. Calm days can be nice and warm to paint on, it lets you concentrate. I like how calm this painting looks now that it is finished.

Yvonne and I were encouraging each other, complaining and laughing. We both finished and right as we were packing up the wind died and then it was really nice!


I named this Winter’s Last Light (10x8”) as it was one of the very last days of winter. It was also one of the last days before we stopped switching our clocks forwards and backwards to change to daylight savings time from standard time. That is now over. No more changing the clocks!

“May you live in interesting times” - an old English saying.
