Castle Rock Spirit

My friend Judith Kunzle helped me discover this special place tucked into the foothills of Mt. Diablo in Northern California. At the top of a rugged trail you come face-to-face with these magnificent stone cliffs -- overwhelmingly beautiful! I decided to carve out a design of strong shapes and brilliant color to convey the powerful spirit of this land, this sky, this day.

Diablo Foothills

This beautiful, peaceful valley nestles into the foothills of Mt. Diablo in Northern California.  On a hot, dry October day, Autumn color vibrated just beneath the surface and the calls of Peregrine falcons pierced the air.
