"Mendocino" ©

The day was gray and flat, the sea completely calm. In the village of Mendocino a sculptor was working on a 2 thousand pound block of Texas limestone, a direct carve. It was a foreign sound, the hammer hitting the chisel with perfect rhythm, in the heart of the village that drew me in. It reminded me of walking the streets of Pietrasanta, Italy.
