Many know Kevin from his 13 years directing Coastside Gallery in the quaint seaside village of Mendocino. During his long run on the North Coast, he painted hundreds of paintings of the historic village and surrounding area and thus many were included in his book, Mendocino: A Painted Pictorial. In addition to the extensive pictorial of the town painted primarily in oils, Kevin also wrote the history of Mendocino and paired the two in his acclaimed book. His efforts were rewarded as the Chief Curator of American Art place the book in the Library of the Smithsonian
Kevin expanded his efforts and began working in the North Coast towns of Point Arena, Elk, Little River, Albion and Caspar. These new coastal paintings can be viewed in the Danville Gallery and will be included in his second volume Big Sur to Mendocino. He has continued his love of the local icon, Mount Diablo, and has a new large-scale series of paintings from Blackhawk, Magee Ranch, Morgan Territory, Curry Point and Mitchell Canyon.
