After a popular opening reception was held on December 8th, there are two more weekends to check out the artwork of Trevor Jones, a young Bolinas artist featured in the pop-up gallery space. He is showing 22 paintings that are truly unique in which he “draws inspiration from the esoteric teachings of inter-dimensional witches.”
All-weather wood sculptures of fantasy sea creatures are featured in the Sculpture Garden. The Sea Creature Fantasy Series is a vibrant meditation on the fantastical nature of our cherished marine life and beyond. Only our dreams know what truly exists in our ocean’s depths. Made in Stinson Beach, they are cut, sanded, primed, sealed, painted and sealed again to endure mother nature’s wrath.

And in Palo Alto In conjunction with their exhibition, Bird in the Hand, the Palo Arts Center Foundation at 1313 Newell Road has copies in their book store of my award winning haiku collection, Bird Watch. In the Bay Area Independent Publilshers Newsletter, Lily O’Brien said, “In this first collection of haiku, remarkable for its evocation of the Northern California sand spit and salt water estuary where the writer-artist makes her home, over 150 poems take us through the four seasons on land and sea, in mind and heart.”
I will be reading with Doreen Stock at Folio Books in San Francisco on March 7, from my latest book, MOVING OUT OF THE FRAME, published by Norfolk Press. We are sponsored by Odd Mondays, a series of readings organized by Judy and Ramon Sender.
