If I hop in my car and head due North, in a matter of a few minutes I’ll end up right at the edge of San Francisco Bay. I love walking out on the levees, which are teeming with wildlife: pelicans, geese, kites, ducks, sandpipers and other birds; hares; I’ve even seen some pretty impressive (non-venomous!) snakes out there. And of course lots of plant life, too — pickleweed, and grasses of all kinds.
Walking on the edge of the bay is where I’ve processed life changes, healed from broken hearts, and started to see my beloved Miracle Man for the keeper he is. It’s a place that’s very dear to me. This painting captures the evanescent quality of sunsets by the water.
