I just got back from a trip up the coast to Big Sur. I attended one of Linda's workshops, stayed at the Big Sur Lodge, met some really cool people, and explored areas of the Point Lobos State Reserve in great detail. I can barely describe how beautiful it was. The weather was outstanding-cool and foggy most of the time. The day I left Los Angeles it was hot and humid, which is an unusual combination for these parts. As I was packing I was unable to make the mental adjustment for a different climate, other than to include a jacket and one t-shirt with sleeves, short sleeves. Everything else I brought was thin and strappy. Even so the change was welcome and refreshing.
From San Diego to Vancouver, 100 Artists of the West Coast II covers 100 artists with over 400 full color photographs of their work. The collection includes art from private as well as public collections and installations, including the collections of LACMA, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art New York, and the New York Public Library to name just a few. I'm happy to be included.
