I have been completely enjoying fall and winter, the months I get to just paint paint paint. It is akin to hibernating. I travel a lot in the months from May through September but the colder months are usually spent here in Eureka where I show at my favorite local gallery, Art of Wine. Started by some friends of mine several years ago, Art of Wine has become a beacon for many to hang out, sample wines, and enjoy some great art from local artists. Every first Saturday of the month, Art of Wine is packed for Eureka’s Art’s Alive. I realize many small towns have Art Walks and Friday Night Art Openings but I have to say, living here, in this little berg, ours is the best. EVERYONE comes down to our waterfront area of Old Town and in addition to the galleries, local businesses sponsor artists. On Every street corner you’ll find musical talent from established bar bands to fiddlers to Native American music makers, to fiddlers with their babies in tow…it always reminds me why I love living here.
But now it is SHOWTIME. I just confirmed a solo show for March 27-end of May at Art Brokers Inc. in Sausalito. No pressure! I’ve been working on several different series though so putting together a cohesive body of work and editing will be the challenge. That and the recent series of oils I have been working on, hmmmmm. An opening reception on Friday March 27 will be open to the public and of course, to my wonderful legion of collectors! Hope to see you there! Now, back to the studio. Here’s a little something for the upcoming show.
