a fun day of art and music in Livermore!

I got over to the studio this morning and did some more detail work on this painting. It is not finished, but I am happy with the progress so far. Gum balls are tricky! They have very subtle color changes to help them look more like a sphere shape. I’ll keep working on them!

We saw the “Living Large” exhibit at the Bankhead in Livermore, CA. It was a nice show and it was fun to run into some wonderful (and talented) artists. It’s always fun to hear the jazz offerings of Matt Finders and friends. I can listen to them all day!

The Living Large show runs through March 2nd – if you are in the area, check it out! It inspired me to work bigger!

Another Art Festival

Art Under the Oaks – July 20th

I will be one of the artists at Art Under the Oaks. This one is hosted by Alden Lane which is a beautiful nursery in Livermore. This is my favorite place to get gardening supplies. I will be there on Saturday only of this 2 day weekend event. check out the details here

I will have lots of original art on canvas, paper and wood as well as prints, coasters and necklaces. There will be food and wine too! Stop by and say hi!

Art in the Vineyard

Sunday May 26 – 11am – 5pm – Wente Vineyards Estate WInery

There will be a group of talented artists welcoming you to enjoy a day of art, art demonstrations, live music and wine tasting. How perfect of a combo is that?

It has been a while…

I have not been posting here on my blog much. I have been busy and have been active on instagram.   (Feel free to follow me there)  I am still trying to figure out which venue is best suited to me. Here’s a few paintings that I have worked on lately:

 

As I see these all together, the common thread is how much I enjoy the various subjects. From that quirky Centennial Bulb to my nail polish addiction, it brings me joy to work on these paintings.

I will be making some prints from these paintings. Do you have a favorite painting from these? Let me know which one in the comment here or on Facebook.
