BEAUTY: Painting--Kurt Solmssen

While I consider myself a true Californian (I have lived here for nearly forty years so I think I am more than official by now), I grew up in upstate New York and have wonderful memories of summers there. Relatives had lake houses and we would visit for days of swimming and barbecuing. The lovely work of Kurt Solmssen captures the feeling of warm summer afternoons and cool firefly nights on a lake. And his affection for a certain yellow boat is charming...
