Benny Bufano


Sadly, we have returned from California. But we did, in fact, eat at some of the spots I mentioned in May, but Timber Cove was  absolutely stunning and we found there  some work by an old acquaintance from San Francisco's North Beach, Benny Bufano. Few today remember him. I always felt that his work was honest;y modernist, strong and aesthetically clear.
