Godfrey at Work on a Mermaid

This was after about half an hour with his tiny electric Stihl chain saw and Bruno's large chisel and small adze. Wonderful art -- carvings and paintings -- have flowed from him all his life. I met him on the beach in Yelapa (south of Puerto Vallarta) in 1963, and he came back with us to Mill Valley in my 1960 VW bus (see a full account of him in Builders of the Pacific Coast). Ironic that the world does not know of him. I saw a painting of a sort of skull-like head by artist Jean-Michel Basquiat that was bought by a Japanese internet billionaire for over 100 million $ last week. Godfrey's art is better than this. Go figure.
