    it wasn't a negative comment, she agreed with him. it is a depressing scene. the commercialization of any beautiful landscape is depressing.
    in particular, i find the gull with the thinning feathers poignant

    I like the darkness in your work.

    Your work is expressive and interpretive.

    Most people are looking for a drawn version of a camera photo and that's not art- that's just regurgitation.

    i'd say it's 50/50 primitive/impressionist...it worked for rousseau, gauguin, picasso....

    That sketch is awesome!

    The Santa Monica pier and Venice are L.A. icons. So many people are drawn there (pun intended). One pair of my Grandparents lived in Venice and the other pair lived 15 miles south in Redondo beach.

    L.A. beaches in the summer are crazy crowded on the weekends.

    How was the drive and the parking?

    Ok, thanks for the support Dawg! I try to be open minded and accepting of other people’s perspectives. There were depressing moments at the beach that day that I just can’t drag me down because more importantly there were so many fantastic different things to sketch! In retrospect I think that comment was more mean spirited then constructive. I realize could never get bored sketching at
    Santa Monica. I went to Zuma Beach in Malibu, today, which is a beautiful beach. But I was so bored! I did one sketch, packed up and drove back down To
    Santa Monica where I finished the Zuma Beach sketch and started another sketch ....and can’t stop sketching everything in sight. It’s always a very energized scene and incredibly beautiful at Santa Monica. The Ferris wheel at night is so trippy. It lights up in the coolest colors.

    This is Zuma Beach in Malibu

    Thank you.
    Thanks so much!
    yeah I totally dig the iconic feel and am feeling a real creative connection At those beaches. Wow that is so cool your grandparents lived in such great beach towns. Your so lucky! The crowd was insane Friday. Gridlock on the pier. I love the large expansive beaches from Santa Monica to Redondo so much. I prefer the waves in that area as well.
    Friday night Parking Santa Monica was super easy in lot 4 all day ...open spots all day and into the evening there and today Street parking at 3rd and Bay has spots just made sure we moved the car a couple times. Hope your doing well through the heat wave and enjoying your summer!

    It’s been a rough start for me professionally here in LA. I start my 3rd job attempt next week sometime . I’m hoping this one in a better fit ! I eventually want to live closer to the beach . I have to take the 134 to 5 to the 110 to 405 to 105 and some other steets to get our favorite beach. It takes about an hour and driving in LA is very interesting. The highway system is incredible and the drivers are awesome. It’s like being a race car driver sometimes...weaving in and out of traffic.. finding your exit. U never know what’s around the corner. The LA River is like a highway . It’s made of concrete and weaves like a snake through the city.

    Yet more reasons I never want to live there, as if I needed any more convincing. Lol

    The only thing Colorado lacks is a saltwater beach.

    Are the canals is Amsterdam made of concrete @DST ? This is the LA River a couple blocks from my apartment. I found this great liquor store by my house as well . They have quite an expensive collection . are you familiar with this liquor?

    Move to OC and work at HOAG!

    I think DST is more familiar with the MACALLAN scotch below the Remy. My cousin is friends with a liquor distributor and they drank the 6K bottle when it was returned by Ritz Carlton.

    Was the 6 k bottle as good as the price? I will look out for a job at Hoag. Thanks for the tip. At Santa Monica today. Cannabis airplane ads. Lol.i wish the vendors would walk around the beach like the mango mango Mango sellers and sell buds and suds like everyone really wants.

    The 'grachten' have brick walls. Most of the original foundations for grachtenpanden (houses on the canals) were wood. Stacked tightly together like the Venetians style also. With the dry weather they have been pumping water into the foundations to keep them normal.
    I saw a similar shaped and priced bottle in a pub in Glasgow. If you wanted a shot you had to buy the bottle. Can't recall the name though.
    Hope you can find a job that makes you happy Ambs. Good luck.

    I drink the 30 dollar Remy and it is very good. I imagine the 6K stuff is amazing.

    You know they have Mountain Lions in California too, right?

    Seriously, what do you have against Colorado?

    I need to be at least an hour to hour and half at most from the ocean ...and it’s too cold there for me, don’t care for the snow and ice. I have Raynauds syndrome which makes an outdoor enthusiast like myself miserable in the cold outdoors that Colorado presents.

    That's fair. I do miss the ocean.

    I understand the water is warmer than ever this summer?
