Happy 2011 Fourth of July!

Path to Baker Beach
16x20 oil on canvas

I hope all of you are celebrating today with something fun and festive. This is an image from a day I and the kids went to check out Baker Beach in San Francisco for the first time. We were lucky to find a spot in the parking lot but some folks had to park their cars at the top of the hill leading up to the park and walk down this sandy path. I hope to paint another image of this beach from the location that is at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge.

So nice and painterly, love that. I see you recently started following me on Twitter, thank you. I need to get back on there and follow you among others, I just haven't been on there in quite a while. I appreciate the follow though.

ts a lovely painting. I love the colours and contrast.
Best wishes,

I have changed my blog to http://www.pencilsandbrushes.blogspot.com/ . My old blog address vd-art.blogspot.com is being used by someone else and it is appearing as VINAYAK DESHMUKH ART in everyone's bloglist which is not correct. Please make the necessary changes.
Thank you,
