I wanted to follow a tradition and extend it.” And the San Francisco native’s own words start you off on what should be a languorous visit to familiar places like Chabot Valley in Richard Biebenkorn’s The Berkeley Years, now showing at San Francisco’s de Young Museum. But even more familiar and very compelling is a personal journey that can be experienced through this painter’s eyes.
