It feels like it's been forever since I've done a little painting just to do a "daily painting"!!  Between preparing for a show and lots of illustration work, painting these little guys has gotten lost in the shuffle!  So, for getting my feet wet again, I chose a scene from a trip we took that included a walk along Cannery Row in Monterey, CA.  Naturally, my mind was filled with Steinbeck and also with trying to imagine what life was like there back when it was a working fishing area.  Even though that all seems so in the past, there is still a feel of an area that has lagged behind a bit, kind of touristy in a pleasant, kitchy way that has a charm of its own.

A lovely painting Vicki and one of my all time favourite books and author! The loose undefined style is working here big time!!
