“Looking Over Avila”

“Looking Over Avila”  11″ X 14″ acrylic study

This is an acrylic study of  a view I saw looking at Avila Beach while I was standing on the patio of the San Luis Bay Inn. The inn is situated on the hill above the town.  I snapped a photo and saved it until I was back in the studio.  I had never seen Avila from this perspective.  I thought it would make a great painting for my “Road Trip” series. The road below leads to San Luis Port which is one of my favorite destinations.  I love watching the seals begging for scraps from the fishermen coming into port with their fresh catch of the day.

 

I enjoy capturing these interesting vignettes, which become memories of a life well-traveled.  At a later date I may create a larger painting of this scene. But for now it captures the mood and feeling of that moment.  One of my friends who saw this study said it was “magical”… Yes, I believe it is.
