California Road Trip
Am I alone in finding the Pacific Ocean and coast of California one of the most magical places on this beautiful planet of ours?

The upside, as far as I am concerned, is that I get to wander around the working areas, looking at piles of building materials, holes in walls, and new elevator shafts. Earlier this year I started to work on some paintings of my favorite spaces in the building. I have j...
