San Mateo Coast

My nephew, Jeff was spending a few nights in a tent cabin at Costanoa, so I decided to ride the Harley up the coast and paint, spend a night, then paint back down the coast. I left around noon Monday, and my first stop was Greyhound Rock. It was nice painting there as I could sit on a park bench with my easel.

First stop was Greyhound Rock state park.
A fellow from Frankfort, Germany stopped by. After chatting a bit, he took a photo of me painting.
Here is a quick snapshot of the painting at Greyhound Rock. I left the lower right a little unfinished as it was time to move up the coast.
Next stop was Pigeon Point lighthouse. I have been planning on doing a large work of this coastal landmark, so decided to practice.

It was blowing so much, my canvas was shaking all over the place, so I didn’t even attempt to paint the lighthouse, but rather all the surroundings.

The tent cabin for the overnight stay. After a nice bbq steak dinner, and some campfire philosophizing, it was off to bed.
The next morning, I decided to stop at Greyhound Rock state park on the way back down the coast as the park benches were very welcoming.

One thought on “San Mateo Coast”

  1. Hi, Donald: Gorgeous work; wish you could come to “my” coast (Maine) and paint

    Is there a snail mail address where I can send you something?

    Kind Regards, Alice
