Artist Statement
"When driving up to Carmel to visit Carmel Fine Art the choices are Hwy 1 along the picturesque coastal road that needs your attention with all the wonderful and distracting vistas, or Hwy 101 which is a straight line from Atascadero to Salinas, where you exit and head west towards Carmel, Pacific Grove, and Pebble Beach on Hwy 68. The river is very dry during the summer months and follows Hwy 101 for many miles, this section is near Paso Robles. Getting close to the river to sketch is no easy task, lots of no trespassing signs are posted everywhere, luckily some off road enthusiasts were helpful and gave directions. On the way to Carmel you cross the river one more time on Hwy 68. A roaring river would have been more dramatic and I will do that one day by following the river to where it enters the Pacific in the Salinas River National Wildlife Refuge area just north of Marina."
