Places to Play in and Pray in

Said John Muir: “Everybody needs beauty...places to play in and pray in where nature may heal and cheer and give strength to the body and soul alike.”
This fall, I'm exhibiting a collection of dioramas about the wild places in California at The Bear Valley Visitor Center in Olema, CA. I'm publishing Glass Cathedrals to my website as I make them...

These are the days

This is a portrait of my family on our favorite winter day out. Homemade 'Lyle' hoodies have become our uniform! Usually Ralph and I collect driftwood to make the fire, and the girls hang out in the dunes and come out to eat chips, pickled cucumbers and chocolate by the fire. Sometimes Ralph brings actual Lyles (baby and giant) but that's a whole 'nother story.
