Sea Ranch

(click on thumbnails for enlargements)

California’s Sea Ranch is a sensitively planned community along California’s wind-blown northern coast, originally conceived by architects Charles W. Moore, Joseph Esherick, William Turnbull, Donlyn Lyndon, and Richard Whitaker and the landscape architect Lawrence Halprin in the early 1960s.  Contemporary architects—including my father—respect, and students of architecture—like my son—study the original vision of the Sea Ranch, and have continued to design homes that respect the balance between the wind, wild meadows, abundant flora and fauna, and sculptured cypress trees of the rugged landscape here. My new figurative and landscape paintings in this series were conceived during long walks among the meadows and cliffs of this 10-mile stretch of coast with family and friends.
