Just uploaded a rework of New Dawn. Laid back relaxing down tempo track with ambient ocean and bird sounds. Sounds like you are on the edge of a tropical forest with the ocean near by. Hope you like it…

Hi All,

I was thinking of changing the site name to mike-hope.net as I am no longer in Hermosa so technically not an hermosaman 🙂 So maybe Mike-Hope.net would be more appropriate…

Thanks for taking a look…

Hi all,

I was researching a bit more on the Hope line from Scotland and uncovered some interesting facts and circumstances surrounding the Hope Diamond and Henry Philip Hope who came into possession of the diamond in the 1800’s after it’s disappearance from King Louis the XVI during the French Revolution. There is a fascinating Smithsonian documentary, Mystery of the Hope Diamond which unravels the diamonds origins, travels and alleged curse…

Henry Philip Hope (1774-1839) brother of Thomas Hope, was a wealthy British banker with an affinity for fine art and precious gems. An 1839 catalogue of his gem collection mentions a large blue diamond weighing 45.5 carats. The diamond would take his name, becoming known as “Hope’s Diamond” or the “Hope Diamond.”

Hi all,

We were down in San Jan Capistrano last weekend and I came across these water lilies in the Mission area. They were so colorful and reminded me of Monet’s famous water lily collection I had viewed earlier in the year whilst visiting the de Young in San Francisco, so I gave it a bit of a painterly feel. Hope you like it…
