Monterey, Oil on canvas; 20" x 20"; 2003This is one of those paintings I hung on to for years because it reminded me of a time between two phases in my work when I was trying out a new idea, balancing on the edge of change. It lies somewhere between my Townscapes and Squarescapes. It had to go to a special home - and so it does, a lovely house with understanding eyes - and someone who grew up in California, too. This is Monterey.
