This is what I designed & illustrated for this years CN calendar. I was assigned the show "My Gym Partner's a Monkey" for the month of September.
Note the homage to the show creators Tim & Julie Cahill on the mailing address.

My colleague and friend Danbob Thompson, my boss and friend Ed Murrieta, and I went to Santa Barbara to paint on Friday. It was really beautiful and it all ended with some good seafood on the pier.
Started this pastel painting at the Mission but the light was changing so fast I took a picture and finished it up at home. This was just a magnificent tree fertilized by several ancient deceased Catholic pilgrims........talk about your "miracle grow."
Also at the Mission......oil on masonite

The last couple of paintings came out hideous.....and will therefore never see the light of day.
I was okay with this one though. I tried to stick with a four color (plus white) palette. I really liked that experience and might make it my normal approach from now on....still so much to learn.
