Beachgoers, both human and canine, enjoy the late afternoon sunshine at Its Beach (Lighthouse Field State Beach) on West Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz, California.
I took this photograph from Lighthouse Point, looking down onto Its Beach and across to West Cliff Drive. This is an image that feels straight out of my childhood. I grew up near this beach and spent many hours in the area captured in this photograph, both on the sand as well as walking on the always beautiful West Cliff Drive. Growing up in Santa Cruz meant growing up in a California beach town; one of the neatest parts of this was the ability to have beach bonfire birthday parties in Winter. Mmmm…s’mores!
I could continue to reminisce, but instead I will say this – it’s Summer, the weather is warm and beautiful…come, join me at the beach!

Welcome to my imagination. It is vivid, colorful and boundless. I will wander through the many shades of original colors and make my own thoughtful interpretations of what they might express as I am creating. For me images tell stories and the more you have to look at them to figure our what is going on the better. I am a complicated person and when I create art it is never simple. I am not satisfied with the first bit of what I do with an image, I need to make it really unique. Photoshop has been such a gift to me and I am thankful for the many tools I am able to use within this software program. I hope you enjoy my bright fantasies and invite you to look closer and tell me what you see….
I just finished a painting for my daughter. She is returning to college in Chicago in a few weeks, and will be sharing an apartment instead of living in the dorms. She wanted a painting of poppies to remind her of home in sunny California. So… “Poppies for Jazz” it is!
I painted a good portion of the piece at the Montrose Art Walk in July. I always like to work on a painting in my booth when I do art fairs.
Here is my progress at the art fair…
Then it sat on my easel in the studio for a few weeks while I finished up my July art workshops.
Here is another look at the finished painting. I love it so much I am making prints of it to sell at my next art walk in September.
So glad I had time to paint today! 🙂
