Southern California has so many wonderful gorgeous beaches, it’s so hard to say which is the most beautiful. Here’s what I will say: I absolutely LOVE painting at El Matador Beach! It’s so stunning, distinctive, and dramatic! Strange rock formations, my favorite being what I call the “Hole in the Wall Rock”: a great hole that the relentless waves has poked through the sandstone rock. I’ve painted it SO many times (many times, very badly….<g>), and u just love it! Here’s the painting I did there yesterday. I think I captured the look of the wet sand after a wave has gone out. I hope you think so, too!
