Lipinski new 36 x 66″ painting from Ridgecrest.

Marin landscape artist, Kathleen Lipinski completed a new large format oil on canvas painting looking north from Ridgecrest.

This new large oil on canvas began as a larger version from the same vantage point as Kathleen’s recent commission. Kathleen has worked from along Ridgecrest many times, as it’s always awe inspiring, always different. This view is from north of Rock Springs, looking north. Mt Vision & Mt. Wittenberg are part of the Inverness Ridge, through the Olema Valley fog, on the left.

Report on the 2017 Sausalito Art Festival.

Kathleen Lipinski survived the Sausalito art festival with paintings of Mt. Tam intact.

This year’s Gala theme was “Moroccan Nights”, and the sweltering heat made it “HOT Moroccan Nights!” Despite the 105 temperature, some ventured to the festival on Saturday, but most waited until the worst of the heat wave passed, to come on Sunday & Monday. During the night on Sunday, a gusty, strong wind came up, cooling things down, but damaging 15 booths with some art casualties. Kathleen, her booth & her art, all survived what many termed the “Sausalito Apocalyptic Festival”, with several paintings delivered to new homes. Thank you to all those who braved the unusual set of elements to visit!
