It's A Cluster

It's fun to paint again. Back with more citrus slices. I love all the colors of citrus fruit. So inspiring, bright orange, yellow, pink, and lime green!

It's a Secret

This is a quick one that I did in between traveling to Las Vegas, and Palm Springs. Now that I'll be home for awhile, I'm looking forward to having time to paint. Can hardly wait! Being away allows you time to clarify ideas, and make plans for what to come! I have all kinds of painting ideas going through my head, and am so excited, and ready to get started!

Palm Springs, Birger Sandzen, and Pam Holnback

We just arrived home from Palm Springs. While Brian was in meetings, I did my usual, and headed for the nearest art museum. In Palm Springs, that museum is, The Palm Springs Art Museum. The main exhibit is, "Colors of the West", showing the work of Birger Sandzen. His paintings are gorgeous landscapes of Colorado, Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico. His work is so much like my friend, fellow artist, and blogger, Pam Holnback's beautiful work. To see for yourself, take a look at Pam's paintings, on her blog, pamholnback.blogspot .com. Next, compare it to Birger Sandzen's work at You'll be amazed!

The Lafayette Farmer's Market

Here we are at the first Lafayette Farmer's Market of the summer, Sadie, Maggie, and me. We were lucky to have a beautiful afternoon with , sunny skies, lots of food, people, small children, and dogs. The gallery will have a booth at the farmer's market one Thursday afternoon a month for the rest of the summer. See you there!

Leaving Las Vegas

Today is the first day back, after a short trip to Las Vegas. While Brian was in meetings, I was on my own. First on my list of things to do, is to see what is showing in the local art exhibits. The Bellagio, has a wonderful art museum, with world class art! I had a chance to see, " Figuratively Speaking", showing various artist's work based on the human figure. Sadly, no photos were allowed. With security everywhere, there was also no hope of sneaking out the camera. The exhibit included works by some of my favorite artists, David Hockney, Picasso, and on and on. Meanwhile, the fresh flowers in the hotel lobby are always gorgeous, and photography is allowed!
