Growing up near the beach, I learned to really appreciate the off-season. There's nothing more relaxing than spending a day in the warm sand once the tourists head home and the temperatures drop. It's when the beach is completely desolate that you can really appreciate its artistry.

Richard Diebenkorn is an artist I've always admired for his distinctive portrayals of the coast.

A Bay Area painter, his seaside compositions verge closer and closer to abstraction, yet still completely capture the feeling of the landscape.

Somehow Diebenkorn arranges a few slivers of color around an opaque ground to achieve a perfect sense of a deserted coastal vista.

I took these pictures on the equally deserted boardwalk, but my boots were hastily removed once my feet hit the sand.

I'm wearing a vintage mohair sweater, Fashion Against AIDS necklace from H&M, Grey Antics jeans (last seen here), suede Halston boots, and Pucci sunglasses.

    1 to 3 pounds per day, most aim to lose 30 pounds in 30
    days. You must be careful to follow an excellent diet when you are using the HCG drops.
    The medical community seems to focus on the status quo.
    You will retain water in case you drink just as much as the Hcg diet plan demands.
    They've already made a decision without resorting to this
    diet, that they are experts round the Buy HCG Drops.
    The nice thing about this diet is that it last in three-week increments.
    There is a lot of buzz concerning HCG Drops on the net
    lately, leading many people to assume that that is a magic capsule (or drops) for fat
    burning. The hormone is produced by the placenta to carry necessary nutrients to ensure a healthy
    pregnancy. However, this also may have serious side
    effects such as protein loss from vital body organs. The diet is based on the premise of surviving
    on 500-800 calories a day along with injections or sub-lingual doses of HCG to reduce appetite and reset the hypothalamus.
