"Evening Glow" © Garland Park, Carmel Valley
Garland Park is the perfect place to paint near Carmel when the coastal fog is thick as cotton. The park is only 8 miles from the ocean, covered in trails, dotted with ancient trees and clear skies. The Carmel River flows year round along the edge of the park, headed to the ocean. I talked to a ranger about the safety of painting alone and he told me it was perfectly safe in the park. You wouldn't think that painting alone could be a problem but I have had a few of close calls, one mountain lion, the others human. When I am involved painting a space ship could land next to me and I wouldn't notice. Well, maybe but you get the idea.
