ENCINITAS — As a piece of underground artwork surreptitiously installed on a city overpass, artist Mark Patterson never anticipated his mosaic to have become as relevant a part of the community that it has.
Thousands of runners and walkers turn out for the inaugural Surfing Madonna Save the Ocean 5 and 10 K run/walk at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas on Saturday.
ENCINITAS — The Surfing Madonna is back where it started — well, almost.
LEUCADIA — The future of the mosaic that brought international recognition to a relatively quiet corner of the world is now solidified.
“Work intuitively, quickly. When you have the whole thing done, then you go back and edit.”These were instructions given to Mark Patterson while studying the art of mosaic in Ravenna, Italy during the autumn of 2010. This approach was soon to have a tremendous impact on his life.
