This is one of my favorite classic color combinations. Yellow and blue is a universal favorite, and can be seen in paintings through out history, and across cultures. I think it is pretty hard to go wrong, using these colors!

We just arrived home after being away for 10 wonderful days. This is the Tower of London, one of the many great places that we visited. The bottom photo shows some metal animal sculptures that are perched on ledges, walls, etc. Evidently, there was a menagerie of all kinds of exotic animals that livid within the tower walls. More to come!

Good news, this painting, "Red Barn", from a few posts ago, was selected to be part of
"Fresh Works", a juried exhibit at the Firehouse Arts Center. The juror, Carrie Lederer, is a practicing artist of 30 yrs, and curator of the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek.
The exhibit will run, May 3 -June 7. The reception will be May 3, from 1 to 3. The Harrington Gallery is located at 4444 Railroad Ave., Pleasanton. Please come. Hope to see you there!
I love Austin Kleon's books. This is his newest, "Show Your Work", which is just as terrific, as his first book, "Steal Like an Artist". He writes about the importance of being generous, sharing your work, ideas, and help, and how all of this benefits you! Such great advice!
We were lucky enough to see Page this weekend. She is spending some time in CA, on her way from her Puerto Vallarta home, back to her home on the east coast. Please be sure sure to take a look at Page's beautiful work, right here.

The focus of Sandy's workshop was reworking old paintings, unfinished paintings, and paintings that
never quite worked. Here is what I did in class, the before and after versions, of an old unfinished painting. The good news is, I have no lack of material for future work!
The talented, painter, and blogger, Debbi Smith Rourke, came all the way from Austin TX, to be a part of this WS. This was Debbi's second WS in CA, with Sandy. We are both inspired to no end by Sandy's paintings. See Debbi's paintings at, debbismithrourkefineart.com.
