Laguna Beach 1950

 
Inspired from an old postcard from the fifties,
and I wanted to do it because my mom and dad honeymooned in their second marriage
(a looong story, not interesting except to family) but in a nutshell
married, three boys, divorced, remarried.

This is a pretty bad sketch — everything is off, and
it was not done in the field,
so no excuses!  I didn’t lay
out basic horizon lines
nor the vanishing point…
I lost a whole chunk of the Hotel Laguna, a landmark.  Like it should be twice as long… SERIOUSLY.
Oh well, perhaps this is one I will redo at some time.

I love the idea of it, and wish I’d seen it in the fifties when it was not overpopulated.
I live in Oregon largely because I as a fourth generation Californian I cannot take what is happening in my home state, the trashing of the natural environment.

    I like this, Kate. I visited Laguna Beach in 1979. Not as far back as the post card, but still longer ago than I care to think about.
