What would your ideal day look like? For Mary and Kent Gusafson, it would be family time on a warm, sunny day in Lake Tahoe. The time spent in their Tahoe cabin epitomizes their active lifestyle, so we captured that on their 14′ tall x 50′ long retaining wall. Now when they walk down the stairs they look out to a perfect day on the lake.
A Dreamy California Landscape for Child Protective Services
I had the privilege to work with the wonderful folks at the Santa Clara Valley Health Center Child Protective Services to create a mural for their lobby. The lobby was shared with the sexual assault services, so they wanted to make sure the mural would appeal to both adults and children. We settled on a landscape that I hope will bring the feeling of calm and safety to all the angels that grace the waiting room. You can see the “room view” and more paintng I did in one of the consultation rooms by following this link to my website.

Let yourself be open and life will be easier. A spoon of salt in a glass of water makes the water undrinkable. A spoon of salt in a lake is almost unnoticed.
When bankers get together for dinner they talk about art.
When artists get together for dinner they talk about money.
ON MY NIGHTSTAND
Life on Two Levels – The autobiography of Josephine Whitney Duveneck
I discovered this book in my research for a mural I am planning at Duveneck Elementary in Palo Alto. I am amazed at the evidence of service and leadership by all the things she started and was involved with, but how humble she is in her telling of the story. Her efforts continue to bless the community most notably through Peninsula School, Hidden Villa, and the Palo Alto Community Center (Lucie Stern).
