It was an absolutely glorious day. It had rained recently so I couldn't get out but everything worked out today for a wonderful, beautiful day. There was a film crew getting a set ready for a movie of some kind so I had to park far away but when I got to the base of the cliff and began to climb up, that's when the real beauty reviewed itself.
I hiked all over and just gloried in the scene. I've been in this area before, but never when the coreopsis was in bloom... Yellow flowers rioted across the top of Pt. Dume and danced in the light breeze.
I finally settled in and started painting the study for this studio painting. Several people came by and made nice comments... As always, I laughed off the nice comments and said something like it would look better later. All the while I talked to myself saying that if someone had something nice to say, I should accept it. I was almost ready to start packing when a nice lady walked by and started talking to me. We talked about the beauty of the spot and she said something to the effect that when days were this glorious... if God took her at that moment, it would be okay. It was a sentiment I totally agreed with. After a while we exchanged information and she said that she might be interested in the painting. Wow... A perfect day made even better!
