a new monotype: Arcata Marsh with what remains of the old railroad

When Arcata was called Uniontown and was a mill town, the timber traveled to Eureka on a railroad that crossed the bay. There is a plaque commemorating this railroad down by the Mars
(near Klopp lake). We have seen the black wooden supports grow shorter and more broken up over the years - and soon they will not be visible anymore. The birds don't sit on them anymore either. In this work you can see them as parallel dots disappearing to the other side of the bay.
Look for this piece at the Westhaven Center for the Arts show, starting March 7. See earlier posts.

Close up of one little heart by Joan Gold. BTW did you see the photo of Joan in her studio in today's Time Standard?

Little Hearts by Joan Gold, donated to Haiti Fundraiser. Come an get yours, this Friday at the Bayside Grange

Our most distinguished artist donated not one (as I thought she was going to) but NINE beautiful framed small paintings of hearts. This is an opportunity to get your own original Joan Gold at an amazing price, and also support the suffering people in Haiti. I am going to get to the Bayside Grange early to bid on one of them. Thank you Joan!
