WILDCAT CAMP  30X24  1996

Returning to a spot that had great emotional value 20 years earlier is always a mind bending event. I tried climbing back into my twenty-one year old self, as uncomfortable as I was, and looking around. It is good to take your pain to a place of beauty. It makes revisiting it a pleasant experience. The challenge of coastal paintings is conveying the infinite horizon and atmosphere. The wind is a hazard, as it catches the canvas and drags me about. This particular camp was plagued by skunks. Getting here involved a long, beautiful hike through giant ferns, meadows, and redwoods. Another 20 years have past. Perhaps it is time to revisit Wildcat Camp.
