Working in Watercolor

December 2015

It’s nice to hear from so many of my collectors.
At last: San Francisco – I have had the good fortune to locate to a dramatic location on a Berkeley hilltop. Below me to the left is a view of the south Oakland bay, next the Bay Bridge approach to Yerba Buena Island with the City skyline beyond it to the west. Continuing right, the Golden Gate Bridge meets the Sausalito headlands, which leads past Angel Island to where Mt. Tamalpais appears in the background.
Although of course I sketch all this in pencil or ink washes, my daily work involves an ongoing interest in creating fairy tales of elder wisdom.
In 2016 I will enter my mid eighties and find myself enjoying this anonymous quote:
“Live like someone left the gate open.”
Continue to let me hear from you,
