I have been having so much fun I haven't taken the time to post for a week. I have a backlog of photos to share with you all. These first two were taken by Gayla. I'll start with last Thursday, when my two new, dear friends, Gayla & Jose, from Russia and Spain treated me to a sumptuous lunch at our famous Chez Panisse Cafe, Alice Waters' restaurant. http://www.chezpanisse.com/.
The anniversary posters for Chez Panisse and some of Alice's cookbooks are crafted by David Lance Goines, renowned poster artist. http://www.goines.net/poster_art.html
My home is filled with David's fine art, hand-printed posters. Gayla fell in love with David's work after seeing it in my home. As David is an old friend from college I arranged for us to visit his studio after lunch. It seemed like the perfect marriage of activities. We also visited David's stained glass triptych for Mary Magdalen Parish, Berkeley, California.
