Where you'll be

We will meet at Tower 3 of Leo Carrillo State Beach in Malibu, CA. This spot is situated above dramatic rock outcroppings, sandy coves, a sea cave and tidal pools overflowing from crashing waves. All of this makes it an ideal environment that I have been painting for years and have enjoyed since childhood. Additionally it is home to an array of wildlife subjects, such as basking sea-lions, cormorants, pelicans, dolphins, surfers, and much more.
