I remember staring at the sea

On a certain sun-filled day, we returned to California

and stopped to rest near the ocean shore.

I peered through the screen of an Airstream trailer,

and absorbed the calm with my camera, while Josh slept peacefully.

I hope you have a wonderfully long weekend...

A Most Stylish Way to Develop Film.

I recently came across a batch of these vintage Film Processing envelopes, and they stopped me in my tracks. "So. Super. Cute." were likely the exact words uttered.

Soon to find its way into a simple black frame, I hope this film envelope lives a long, happy life on my studio walls. One for Me, two for You... now available at ABLE + BAKER.

On Any Sunday

In my studio, working on Sunday, but not too hard.

(Steve McQueen + motorcycles + 1971 = one great film.)

Small Town Portrait, Sunlight and Open Space

"Travel is the art form available to Everyman. You sit in the coffee shop in a strange city and nobody knows who you are, or cares, and so you shed your checkered past and your motley credentials and you face the day unarmed ... And onward we go and some day in the distant future, we will stop and turn around in astonishment to see all the places we've been..."
-Garrison Keillor

This Weekend I hope you'll:
1. Be treated with warm, gentle weather
2. Read this piece in the New York Times
3. Be inspired, Take yourself on an adventure
4. Enjoy, whatever you do.

p.s. A few sun-filled moments you might have missed here.

Mother's Day Hangover

Good morning, I hope you enjoyed a fantastic Mother's Day. Me? I'm recovering from a wonderful whirlwind-of-a-weekend with my family.

I intended to share these images with you yesterday, but lost track of time somewhere in between making this super tasty dessert, chasing nephews around the yard, coordinating a BBQ feast with my brother, and helping my other brother's adorable family move into their new home. It was quite a weekend.

I love so much about these images. They're from the Owner's Manual that came with my parent's first refrigerator, in their first home together. I love to remember that my parents were once newlyweds, a little family of two, like Me and Josh. When they brought this refrigerator home, they knew nothing of the thousands of happy moments they would share with their children and grandchildren.

Happy day-after Mother's Day Mom. You're a star.

SFMOMA Artist's Gallery Warehouse Event

I am proud to be participating in this year's Warehouse Event, which kicked off last night and will run through Sunday, May 9. Each year the SFMOMA Artist's Gallery invites 300 Artists to participate, and let me share with you how it feels to be 1 of the 300... it's nice. really. very. nice.

Last week, I volunteered at the Gallery and it was so much fun. I helped check-in artwork, and got to peruse much of the work for sale. Truthfully, the amount of really cool artwork I saw was a bit overwhelming. Does it make any sense to think that the last day of the sale would be the best day to go, for the simple reason that there's less to choose from?

As if the array of artwork isn't enough, the Gallery itself is situated in Fort Mason Center, with a picturesque view of the water and Golden Gate Bridge.

All purchases directly benefit the Gallery and Artists. Not in San Francisco? You can view a selection of the work for sale by visiting the Gallery's Facebook page.

The artwork on the Event invite is by Paul Madonna, whose work you can also see for one more day at Hotel Biron (one of my favorite places to see and show art!) Go see, go see...

Thanks everyone!
