Sunny & Windy


596. Sunny & Windy Oil painting by Mariko Irie

On Mendocino Coast, when it’s sunny, it’s windy a lot of times. I think wind blows fog away, then it gets sunny.

I love old fences.

In Mendocino Village, Mendocino Historic Review Board has a lot of power, so they try to keep everything stay same as two hundreds years ago. Of cause they repaint, put new foundations….

I lived Mendocino for twenty-seven years. I know that it has been changed. But it’s much, much slower than Tokyo. I can say that Mendocino doesn’t change like Tokyo.


They call this part of Mendocino village, Portuguese Flat.


It was windy, so it gave movement to this painting, don’t you think?
