One of the reasons that I went to California this past week (besides visiting Harmony, of course) was to do some more research about beach plastic. Since Chile was so pristine and we didn't see very much (good thing!), I felt compelled to go to California and see what plastic I could find. Remember this post? About the fabulous Richard and Judith Lange? Harmony and I got to have lunch with them, talk about their artwork and beach plastic in general. They showed us around their studio and their storage space in an old barn.

bags I sent them. Glad it is getting used!

Thank you Richard and Judith for a lovely lunch, sharing your home and studio with me (and Harmony) and the wonderful conversation! Tomorrow I will post about Harmony and I picking up plastic at Kehoe Beach, where Richard and Judith collect their treasures. Teresa
