A Day in the Santa Cruz Mountains

Just before California went back into lockdown, I spent a most lovely day with Gay and Nina in the Santa Cruz mountains painting persimmon trees. We do this every year, Nina and I check when the persimmon are ripening and then head up to Gay’s place. It’s come to become so special, this trip. I look forward to it as soon as the leaves start turning…

Here are two sketches of the hachiya persimmon trees.

And one of the fuyus.

It was my birthday and I couldn’t have asked for a better day: sketching with friends in a magical place, a visit from the wild turkeys and a delicious apple cake made by Gay.

    Sometimes two special days can come exactly together for a special person!

  3. Nice paintings of the Persimmon Trees! All the trees here are skeletons now, and soon the snow will fly.
