Plein Air Painting - The Sun Breaks On Point Reyes

For #throwbackthursday, a Patrick Saunders Fine Arts piece painted three years ago this month for the 2015 Sonoma Plein Air Art Festival.

If you've ever been to the Point Reyes Lighthouse in California, you know it's a bit of a hike in and out in order to make a painting like this, but Patrick found this landmark well worth the effort.

We first visited Point Reyes National Seashore in 2012 when we lived in San Francisco, California. The fog was so heavy on that particular day that you couldn't even see the ocean, you could only hear waves crashing below, but it only added to the beauty of the place and the experience.
