Cassius in June, watercolor, 6x4". Painted plein-air in my daughter's backyard yesterday, while Cassius was playing, laughing, drinking lemonade, and jumping in the pool. Cassius is 5 years old, and has recently graduated from Kindergarten. Yesterday Sunday was Father's Day in California. It was very warm in the San Fernando Valley, and about 20 degrees Farenheit less in Los Angeles and San Diego, near the beaches. It is amazing that in just an hour or two drive you can have such a difference in temperature.
