Throwback Thursday - Sonoma Plein Air Festival

For #ThrowBackThursday, here is a piece I painted during the 2015 Sonoma Plein Air Art Festival.

If you've ever been to the lighthouse at Point Reyes National Seashore, then you know how far it is from everything. It's way out there. No cell reception. Once you hit the parking lot, you've still got a mile long hike, and much of that is stairs. As I made the hike, dense fog rolled in obscuring everything. The wind can be brutal. I backed myself into a nice corner and lashed my easel to a metal railing. Just then, the sun broke through the clouds. - Patrick Saunders
