Point Arena memories...
Hello all. We recently visited the rugged northern coastline of Mendocino County and I took several photos of the area for painting inspiration. One of the places we went to was Point Arena Light house. The land 6 miles north and south of the light house was donated to the public to enjoy. Many great rock formations carved by the pounding waves clearly show the land being slowly removed by water, now a wonderful natural habitat for wildlife. One of my favorites are the pelicans that soar effortlessly on the wind . I had to put one into the painting. The light house is open to the public but show up on a non-foggy day so you don't miss out on the view from the top. I highly recommend this trip up the coast for all you soul searchers out there. It will add a new breath of life into all who venture there. Hope you like it... till next time enjoy...
