This was my first painting in Monterey on Wednesday of last week, where I attended the Plein Air Convention. It was a wonderful week, filled with dozens of faculty doing demos and key notes.

I didn't paint again until Saturday, the entire conference went to Asilomar, where it was so beautiful but windy - below is a short video that will give you an idea of how it was blowing, and I took this video after I moved off the beach, back into the dunes! I managed to get in a quick study but I had to literally hold onto my easel as I painted, I got blown off my feet more than once but never lost the painting.
And here is the painting:
