Art in the Home
Spot, who is an amazingly intelligent and worldly lurcher, asked about some artwork in my home. So here is a little sampling. Above is a copy of the relatives's painting called Drying Sails. Below is a larger piece called Summer Morning, St. Ives. The originals are at the Monterey Museum of Art.
We were lucky enough to be invited to a retrospective of the artist's work at the Carmel Art Association in 2001. It was grand to see so much of her work gathered together from museums and private collections. We've also seen her work at the Oakland Museum, and the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco. And we've also seen her work in the in law's living room and a second cousin's dining room in Chagford. What a delight to have an artist in the family.
