MarinMOCA Summer National

I am so excited to participate in this year's Summer National Exhibition at the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art with my recent painting, Connecting the Dots in My Life.   This image sprang to mind a long time ago, though I was so busy with my small paintings that the...

Spring is Here!

This Friday evening, April 5, the Breath of Spring exhibit opens at the Pacific Art League. For my entry I did something different this time: three paintings on MDF panels which I affixed via a thin "spacer" to a painted background board. I think the result is really nice. I call this piece...

Reaching for the Stars

Nope, this isn't a post about astronomy, nor the starry vista overhead in the clear evening sky. It's about reaching for the figurative stars in our dreams. We all have dreams: goals and other wishes that we hope to achieve or experience. Often, we stumble and miss in our efforts. Sometimes we...

50-50 IV Opens to Large Crowds

Opening night of the 50-50 IV exhibit was lots of fun, with music, food, drink, and a big crowd of people! Weaving around enthusiastic viewers from one end of each hall to reach the other was a challenge all by itself, and well worth it.   Here are two people looking closely...

Happy Hour

At an art opening few weeks ago I met Beth Lemke, Proprietor of A Grape in the Fog in Pacifica. Thinking it would be great fun to include a glass of wine in my 50-50 show art, and needing a respite from the intense weeks of painting, I strolled in with my camera...

Downward Slope

I'm past the midpoint and am on the downhill slope. In other words, I have more than 25 of my 50 paintings done! In fact, I just posted several more, which you can select and view via the thumbnails page .   One of my recent pieces, Let's Tour, is handled a little differently. I...

More 50-50 Fun!

The results are in and I've been accepted into this year's 50-50 IV show at the Sanchez Art Center - hooray! So I'm buckling down and getting my 50 paintings underway. This year my theme is 50 Favorites Within 15 Miles of Home . It's the logical "next step" to last year's topic, for which I...

Celebrating the Golden Gate

Celebrations are moving into full gear for the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge, which is May 27. I am excited to play a part in these events, for my mixed media artwork, Golden Gate , will be exhibited at the George Krevsky Gallery in a special show commemorating the span's 75...
