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.

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.

This piece was created from a picture of a client's son, David, to remember his sailing days in Dana Point.
Paul paints images inspired by the area and his wife Kimberleigh creates designs merchandise for local and national events including San Clemente's Fiesta, Dana Point's Championship Barbecue, Mission SJC's Swallows Day and the MCAS Miramar Air Show.
