Malibu Creek Summer10:52 AM
My nephew visited us for a couple of weeks at the end of summer. It was such fun~ because he's an artsy boy, who is totally into all things art & creative. We did some field trips to the Getty Museum, Santa Barbara galleries & cafes, as well as a few art stores for supplies. But I think one of the highlight's was plein air painting at Malibu Creek State Park. We did a little hiking to explore where we would feel most inspired, only to come back to the parking lot and set up shop by the local mountains. The parking lot has some lovely colorful views and great light when the sun is setting. My nephew was thrilled to practice his watercolors while observing my process with oils.
