They set up easels on cliffs overlooking the ocean and watch the sun rise over the Santa Ana Mountains. But Costa Mesa painter Michael Ward isn’t interested in any of that. He prefers to focus on subjects that are extraordinarily mundane, from one-story homes in his Halecrest neighborhood to a man watering his lawn.

Contract negotiations. Flight reservations. Venue selections. Itineraries. Sponsors. Fruit baskets.

She brings in top talent from around the county, state, country and world for the annual event, which opens Saturday in Laguna Beach. “Coordinating the schedule just takes my breath away,” Gates said. It’s very, very complicated, and requires a lot of organizational skills, but fortunately I’m pretty good at multi-tasking, and I thrive on the challenge.
