Water Color Landscapes of Burlingame

Summer in Burlingame has been a terrific improvement for outdoor activities from summers in San Francisco. To be sure, SF summers have a charm that I will never reject, and if you have some nice layers of clothing, a walk through Golden Gate park or the Presidio in the fog is a wonderful experience. But for pure, warm sunny strolls with Arthur and Masha, there is something great about the fresh air in Burlingame. The afternoons cool down gradually, and occasionally you still get a taste of the marine layer coming in over the ridge along highway 35. It is ideal for doing some plein air paintings in watercolor as your paint dries swiftly and the gentle breeze keeps you from overheating. This town has the quaint comfort of "small town America" but is situated on the bay and surrounded by natural beauty from shoreline to shoreline of the greater peninsula.
