MAY IS ART month in the county. Hundreds of art- ists are opening their work spaces as part of Marin Open Studios (see the insert in
this month’s issue) and we are featuring local
art right on the cover. Read more about our
ninth annual cover contest winner and the 12
finalists and see their magnificent creations in
our “Pen, Brush and Lens” feature.
The saying “when life you gives you lemons, make lemonade” has never been truer
than in the piece written and photographed
by Lori Eanes. The local food photographer
shares four recipes that highlight the sour and
sweet side of this versatile fruit.
We wrap up features with an inspir-
ing story about moms going back to work.
Writer Samantha Parent Walravens introduces us to six women who, after the kids
had grown up, jumped back into the workforce as business recruiters, entrepreneurs,
real estate agents and more.
Up front we spend the day with plein air
artists (we told you it was art month), hear
some wise words from women authors (it’s also
Mother’s Day this month), offer another great
of artists are
studios as part
and we are
art right on
selection of books in Reading List and introduce
you to musician Caroline de Lone, as well as the
woman behind Laurel Whole Plant Organics
and bookstore maven Elaine Petrocelli.
In Destinations, writer and golfer Robert
Kaufman suggests the perfect golf road trip,
featuring five courses in five days. Fore!
And for something a little different, join
adventure tour leader Vassi Koutsaftis on a
Journey to a place most of us will probably
never get to go: Pakistan.
It’s a big May issue, and we hope you
enjoy it and maybe even find a little inspiration in the stories of artists, entrepreneurs
and reinvigorated moms. Meanwhile, we
hope to see you out and about at a few open-studio events this month.
