Living near the beach I can't help but include the ocean in my sketches, my concepts and ultimately my artwork. The above image is a detail from one of my recent paintings. The ocean starts to appear as I walk west toward home. The horizon always seems high as I descend westward through the avenues. This is especially so as I get closer to Lands End begins above Sutro Baths. The view never gets old and is always worth the walk from 10th avenue to 48th.
