Headed for the beach?
Be sure to dress appropriately.

There’s a Sorolla exhibition in San Diego starting May 31.
Noted. Thanks, Hank!
An incredible painting with just a few brush strokes. Thank you, Charley.
Awning in Dutch means markies zonnescherm and luifel. Two possibilities.
Zarauz beach is called “La Reina de las Playas” – Queen of Beaches. Must figure out for myself this summer.
Phenomenal artist. If you have ever been to Spain you’ll know light there in general is exceptional, a true feast, but if you go to Valencia where he was from it’s unbelievable, like someone cranked up the saturation to the maximum. I had never seen colors that vibrant in my life. Perfect place for a talent like Sorolla to be born and raised.
Fascinating to know that about Valencia, Marcos. Thanks. It’s sometimes difficult to separate how much of the look of a landscape painting if from the llight and atmosphere of the place, and how much from the artist.
If I were the Judge, I would not make any comments regarding the merits of any of the arguments made against Obama's eligibility. I would simply grant each of the plaintiffs a default judgement against Obama based on solely on the fact that he failed to appear.
