Tower

For those of you who have been to Balboa Park in San Diego and heard the bells of the California Tower, this is a glimpse from where they emanate. One can now take a tour up into the Tower as part of the Museum of Man’s exhibits. The Tower is indeed a magical place, its interior just as beautiful and mysterious as I’d always imagined.

A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.

Looking up inside LACMA.

With the new Broad Museum’s opening in downtown Los Angeles, we here in California gained access to even more vibrant art. It’s always great seeing so much of my old friend Robert’s artwork so prominently displayed in LACMA, as well as the Broad.

While on a trip along the shore,

my camera chanced a scene

Perhaps she stepped so gingerly,

as not to tell her gaze.

A step now held on air and light,

above the foamy green.

I rarely explain my work, but with this painting I’d like to. In some way our parrot here represents my slightly Hispanic heritage. My Great Great Grandpa,William Roxburgh came to the America’s in 1841. He left Scotland via Liverpool and made his home in Vera Cruz, there he married  Juana Beltran who’s Mexican blood is in my veins. Their son Alfred Felix came to San Diego in 1899. His wife Margaret was an artist who loved to draw and paint Balboa Park from it’s inception.
