Uncle Maurice

PebblebeachMHB.JM I want to create a website in honor of my late uncle, the artist Maurice Bernson, and since I haven't been able to pull that off quite yet... I thought I'd put some posts related to him on my blog in the meantime. 

Maurice had a huge influence on me. He was a multi-talented artist and, from as early as I can remember, he considered me one too. Whenever I talked to him on the phone, he would always end our chats by saying, "Remember, us artists gotta stick together!" 

This photo was taken of us at Pebble Beach near Pescadero in Northern California in the early '80s. The area has sculpted rock formations and a beach that is made up of beautiful pebbles of all colors, wonderfully rounded, and a pleasure to let run through your fingers! It was a spectacular day, like many I shared with him.
