Treat yourself to a lovely day for a change.

Time to 'fess up...
I’m excited about showing in Monterey!

Indeedy, my work is featured in Transience, March 15 through April 15 at The Gallery of Monterey Peninsula College, along with sculptures by Annaliese Vobis. Please join our reception on Saint Patrick’s Day, Thursday March 17, 12:30- 2 pm, with artists’ talks at 1 pm. Wearing green is completely optional, but do bring 4 silvery-like quarters for the parking lot.

Yes, it is a bit of a drive from the SF Peninsula, but it is frankly quite beautiful—tree-lined highways, bucolic farmlands, the ocean with inspiring surf, and quaint sights that we usually don’t get to enjoy staying stuck in the suburbs. Treat yourself to a lovely day for a change. [Driving directions are at the bottom of this post. Need bicycling directions? You're on your own.]
Notes on this image: I call this one "Vogue" because it reminds me of the highly stylized, innovative fashion photos that Richard Avedon took for Vogue and Bazaar magazines in the 60's. His beautiful work influenced my thinking in composition and taking creative risks.
Driving directions to The Gallery of Monterey Peninsula College: as you come down Highway 1 from the north, take the 401 exit Aguajito Road toward Monterey, keep left at the fork and follow signs for the college, which merges you onto Fremont. Turn left at Via Mirada, then take the 1st left onto Fishnet Road. Go a long block into the campus and you will see the art gallery across a parking lot on your left. It looks like a big white cube, but is very nice space inside for art.
