Artist Ken Goldman Sheltering in Place

Ken Goldman, Artist in Residence
“Sheltering in Place”
None of us had control over the arrival of Covid-19. Even Rancho La Puerta in it’s 80th year of existence, has been forced to seek out new ways to adapt. We can’t control what comes our way, but we can control our response to it.


Having painted so many Ranch landscape, flora and fauna images during the last 50 years (including the 50th anniversary celebratory jacket), I was looking forward to being involved again in this year’s 80th anniversary celebration. But that was not to be, so I decided to look for a silver lining instead.


During this enforced “artist in residence” saga, I am celebrating the 80th anniversary by painting four new springtime La Puerta images (acrylic on watercolor paper, 22×30), two of which are now complete. In addition to these two new paintings, here are several other springtime images painted between 1970 to now. As you view these images, I hope they provide a vicarious sense of springtime joy.
