Rosicrucian Museum, San Jose, January 19th

What a contrast weatherwise from our last outing. I was glad I dressed for winter because it was very cold when you were sat still painting. We had the Rosicrucian to ourselves for a little while, but pretty soon it was swamped by groups of school children. To make the most of it I had some fun painting figures.

We only painted until Noon, then had a quick lunch and went off to the Triton Museum to see the 2011 Statewide Painting Exhibition  There are some wonderful paintings on show there, well worth visiting.

Palo Alto Baylands, January 5th, 2012

This was a gorgeous day, and no better place to be than by the saltmarshes surrounded by birds and views of the mountains. A Great Egret and Snowy Egret were fishing very close to us. Fun for us - not so fun for the fish!
