All Wrapped Up

I delivered these little paintings to the Lafayette Gallery, today. They will be for sale starting, May 4th.  They are already gift wrapped, in clear cello bags, with ribbon, and ready to go.  Perfect for Mother's Day!

One more

More fun!

A Quick One

Still having fun!  

Another Idea from Sandy Ostrau

Here is one more idea from Sandy Ostrau's WS.  Sandy recommends Art Work Essentials, brushes.  I ordered 2 of every size, have been really enjoying them.  They are very low cost, and arrived the next day!

Working Larger, and Smaller

I have been busy with larger paintings, which all seem to be in various states of incompletion. Since I love closure, I've been using up leftover paint to make some little 4 X 4's. So much fun!

Firehouse Arts Center, Harrington Gallery

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!

Show Your Work, by Austin Kleon

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!

Page Railsback is Back!

Wonderful friend, artist, and blogger, Page Railsback visits San Francisco.  Here is Page, Brian, and me, at the de Young Museum, to see the Georgia O'Keefe exhibit.
 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.
