Pt. Isabel in the Dry Summer, ink & watercolor 5x7"

Pt. Isabel is the USA’s (if not the world’s) largest off-leash dog park with 500,000 doggie visits a year. It is situated on what would be prime waterfront property if it weren’t all landfill that will likely return to the sea in an earthquake.  Since it doesn’t rain all summer in California, gold, brown and grey-green are the primary colors of the landscape.

Without rain, there’s nothing to wash away the “marks” made by every dog who crosses the stinky bridge that goes from one part of the park to another.  I always hold my breath when I cross in the summer. In a few months rain will wash the park clean and everything will be green again.

  2. Great sketch although your discription made me wrinkle my own nose in disgust.

    Love your cementary sketches and apple store ones too. I’ve been so lazy recently, but feel inspired to follow your lead.
