Gallery Visit

This weekend while visiting family in Berkeley, California – I took a side trip across the bay to sunny Marin County. There, I saw an intimate show of works on paper by Richard Diebenkorn. ┬áHosted by the College of Marin and organized by the Diebenkorn Trust, the exhibit┬áconsisted of small collages, drawings and gouaches never before shown. Growing up in the Bay Area with an art-loving mother, I was exposed to Diebenkorn’s work at a young age. I loved his bright colors, and later as a beginning painter, I was influenced by his compositions – especially his Ocean Park series. His work still speaks to me today – he is an artist I will revisit again and again.
