More From the Road

Once again, somewhere between Albuquerque, and Santa Fe. I love this this drive. It takes a little more than an hour to go from the the airport in Albuquerque, to Santa Fe. It is wonderful to see the wide open space, and the huge sky. It is peaceful, and calming, compared to the high energy, hustle and bustle of the San Francisco bay area. An immediate feeling of serenity takes over, somewhere along the highway. I think it has to do with going from the most populated state, California, to the least populated, New Mexico. It's all good, both the hustle and bustle, and the peacefulness. What makes it all the more wonderful is the contrast, the best of both worlds!

On the Road Again

Another drive by painting, taken from a photo somewhere between Albuquerque, and Santa Fe. I'm still working with these same photos, while trying to prepare for the next exhibit at the Lafayette Gallery. This exhibit will open on Oct. 12, and have a Southwest theme. There will be more to come, all with the southwest as the subject matter, stay tuned! To all, have a very happy weekend!

"Snap", at the Lafayette Gallery

Our newest exhibit at the Lafayette Gallery, opening this Tues., is titled "Snap". The idea behind the exhibit is to show how snapshots influence artwork. This can be interpreted many ways, for example, snapshots can be used as a reference for a painting, incorporated into a collage, or partially used for color, or texture ideas, and on , and on. Here is my framed work, ready for hanging, along with two snapshots used for inspiration. Please come by to see our new exhibit!
