Avalon Shimmer 18" x 24" - Oil on Mounted Linen - $8,200
Catalina Island has become something of a 'home away from home' for me. I connect to the place in a visceral way. Leaving Saint Paul in the very heart of winter and arriving at this freshly-washed, green island is a tonic to my soul. The rough electric shock of the drastic change of scenery allows a contrast which makes me appreciate both worlds more intensely and individually.
