For more than 35 years, San Anselmo’s Kathleen Lipinski has been working with images of the Marin landscape in painting and printmaking. In 2015, she and her hus-
band, Steve Emery, received the 2015 Marin Cultural Treasure
Award for their work in art and the community.
“Bon Tempe Lake is distinctly stunning every day with
clouds, fog or clear skies; mirror-like reflections or wind;
golden summer light or brilliant spring greens and wildflowers; chiseled shadows or pale blue silhouettes,” Lipinski says.
“The natural beauty, expansive views and amazing quality of
light in Marin provide a never-ending supply of inspiration
for my work.”

After recently relocating to West Marin, Kim Ford Kitz has been happily soaking up her new surroundings. When she is not at the beach, in the woods, on the trails or driving the back
roads, she finds herself sketching every chance she can get.
“For this piece I was inspired by a sketch I drew after a weekend
stay at a beautiful garden property overlooking Stinson Beach,” the
artist says. “I chose to enter this piece because I am getting married at
that same location in May.”
