One more by the talented Gene Holtan--rest in peace
Gene Holtan, wonderful and whimsical artist of Northern California passed away a couple of weeks ago but left us with an incredible body of work. We are hoping to have a show in his memory next year in Santa Cruz featuring his spectacularly painted pottery, his giant food paintings, and collections of the illustrated cards he sent to do many people in his life. We miss you, Gene

The Golden Staircase to the Black Divide, John Muir Trail
I was doing this in late October, got it on the press as the election came and the colors got a bit more dramatic. Is it symbolic of something, Where are we headed on the trail? North to the stormy Black Divide? South climbing up the Golden Staircase?
