“San Simeon Point”… This piece was instrumental in rediscovering my life as an artist . This scene was viewed almost daily as I went to work at the State of California Historical Monument at Hearst Castle . The twisted , gnarled limbs just called me in . This style that I call my own leads me to investigate the complex pattern sculpted by the strong winds off Pacific Ocean . This scene is located on the enormous Hearst Ranch which encompasses the small town of San Simeon California .
