Artist's Description

You said to me “Come away with me”.
But you knew I would not leave.
This place has been my home forever
My roots grow deep, I couldn’t leave, ever.

This sky is blue, the air is clean.
A more wonderful day have you ever seen?
Pine trees grow to my front door.
Life is good, could you ask for more?

Why not stay here with me?
Just think of the days ahead.
No better place could you live.
Have you heard a word I’ve said?

Oh California, Monterey,
You’ll be my home till my dying day.
I’ve grown too fond to say goodbye.
My home’s the best place for me to lie.

Rhythm of Hope – Jean-luc Ponty

A little road trip with a friend to Santa Barbara, CA USA in springtime. We had lunch at the end of the pier. Someone wanted to join us. . .

Feb. 2012 I reworked this and this is the new version. My own photo post-processed in PSCS2 using the Fractalius filter layer, DAP blending layer for a watercolor effect & tonal coloring.
