Art Notes

Monterey's famed Cannery Row is undergoing a renaissance. No longer the bustling sardine fishing center immortalized by John Steinbeck, today Cannery Row entices visitors with its many fine shops and boutiques.

As I continue my odyssey as an artist, I find myself drawn to the historic seaside villages of California. One of the reasons, I believe, is that the coastal air, saturated with mist, lays down a mirror-like film of moisture on streets and walks. Cannery Row Sunset created to celebrate Cannery Row's 50th Anniversary makes full use of the reflective play of light and color on the streets and upon the luminous surface of Monterey Bay.
