Paul Gavin's "Morning Colors: San Clemente Pier Walk" oil painting on canvas is featured on the 2014 City of San Clemente Recreation Magazine. Along with regular morning pier activities, this painting captures the three stripes down the pier phenomenon. Purchase the enhanced giclee here.
The 2013 Miramar Air Show was projected to be an entertaining event headlined by civilian aerial performers as well as a jet truck, drag racing and evening concert performances. Everything changed early Thursday morning when the decision was made to cancel the air show as a result of the government shutdown. Unfortunately, the Gavins had already completed production on their merchandise and we have T-shirts, zip hoodies, posters and baseball caps for sale.
Like his watercolor painting Dana Dreams: An Endless Summer, the first of his Premier Coastal Series completed in 1988, the view is from above the Orange County Marine Institute looking across the Harbor toward's Dana Point, Capistrano Beach, and San Clemente with Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in the distance.
Kimberleigh Gavin has created another magical design for the 2013 San Clemente Fiesta. Again reminiscent of 1960s and 1970s psychedelic rock posters, this year the "Queen of the Surf Guitar" slices through a wave of words and layers of musical notes and other design elements past an "Electric Butterfly." Tank tops and posters, too!
We celebrate the 300 birthday of Father Junipero Serra, founder of Mission San Juan Capistrano and other missions up and down the length of California. Kimberleigh has created the logo pictured here and a beautiful 14-color design dedicated to the accomplishments of Father Serra.
A new life — with a little help from some friends. The original Beach Flag at Poche unofficial monument has been relocated and restored and Paul has painted it as he did with the original. See them both.

Amgrunt is one of six paintings from Paul's new series featureing paintings of United States Marine Corps Amphibious Tractors (Amtracs) at Camp Pendleton and in Vietnam from 1967 - 1969.
The hills above San Juan Capistrano provide a peaceful location to get away and on a clear day a beautiful view of San Diego to the south, Avalon on Catalina to the west, and the San Gabriel Mountains to the north. Horses and riders have played a major role in San Juan's history and the city is still home to a large equestrian population.
A mom and her two princesses take advantage of a very low tide to plan and build their dream castle. A soft setting sun illuminates the scene beside the San Clemente Pier: warm sunset light dances on the water and delicately highlights the figures that are beautifully reflected in the shimmering sand. Small, slow moving wavelets keep the area moist as the tide recedes, leaving the sand perfect for castle construction and dribbling, hopefully all to be finished before the sun sets and the tide returns.
