A small bird sitting on the seawall at Ocean Beach in San Francisco, with the famous Seal Rocks just offshore, caught my attention.

On a recent morning, I awoke with an image in my head of a pool inside a walled compound with large trees growing outside.  When painting it, the trees turned into foliage but the feeling behind it remained the same.

I once read of an art teacher who suggested that a student paint the same subject 100 times.  Thinking I might learn something from a scaled back version of this experiment, I painted a simple landscape with small 8x8 canvases--but only five times, each with a different color palette and slight variation in technique.
