Sometimes I spend my entire weekend painting in the studio, and sometimes I venture out to travel, explore, and collect new sources of inspiration.. And on these occasions, sometimes I get lucky enough to score a $75 roundtrip to San Diego.
California has been on my travel list for awhile now, and this trip was my first time ever visiting the West coast. I can say with certainty that it did not disappoint. The gorgeous coastlines and hilly cityscapes that compose San Diego were filled with a stunning array of colors that I couldn't get enough of. Brilliant blues, rocky neutrals, desert reds and golden oranges... an artist's dream.
It was a quick trip but we managed to squeeze in as much sight seeing as we could - stopping by La Jolla, Point Loma, Coronado and more. It left me feeling so excited to get back into my studio and bring a little California color to my palettes.
I can't wait to return and explore more of this beautiful state and its neighbors. Until then, here are a few of my favorite snaps from this West coast weekend..
