It’s Sausalito Art Festival time! Labor Day Weekend, September 5, 6 and 7 marks my favorite show of the year, and my 10th straight year participating in the #1 art festival in the country. This year will be the first year I will be debuting a series of oil paintings in addition to my pastels. Check the “Oils” category on the right side tab bar for a sampling of what I will be showing. Additionally, I’ve been adding new pastels frequently so be sure to check the Pastels category as well! For the past two years I’ve been fortunate enough to serve on the 2-D jury and this year there should be some great work by new artists and of course excellent art from artists who have been exhibiting at Sausalito consistently over time. I’ve been working hard doing extensive preparations for this show so I hope to see you all there…its a wonderfully fun event!

Artists are always evolving and hopefully their work evolves as well. Its interesting to reflect back on previous work and what was the impetus that inspired it and moved it forward. When I look back on this past year (I tend to think in terms of years ending at Labor Day….something to do with the school schedule….) I was clearly in an introspective time. My landscape paintings were more intimate and focal, the color was rich yet not as saturated. I am proud of the work I did but am ready to move on again, or should I say back a few yards to more vast views of the landscape. Travelling in the Pacific Northwest this summer I was inspired again by our beautiful northern vistas, hills and valleys, our vineyards and farmlands, and the rich color palette that our eyes are lavished with. I’ll be continuing with pastels and also with oils. I’m ready for summer to simmer so to speak and to roam the valleys for places to paint. August has already been fruitful so check back.Learn More
