I will be exhibiting in a group show titled “Seasonal Landscapes” at Robert Allen Fine Art, from December 2 – January 20. Among other pieces I will be showing “November Rain.” It seems this time of year I am especially drawn to the brilliant colors of autumn and the vineyards of northern California are a spectacular vision to be inspired by. I spent the weekend in the wine country, from Napa Valley to Alexander Valley on a glorious cloudy yet shimmering light filled day following a strong thunderstorm and I took pictures to work from that I cannot wait to execute. It was a bit like heaven driving through these scarlet and ochre laden hillsides and fields. The light was at times brilliant and then suddenly cool and dark. Days like that are so few and far between. For an artist it was the holy grail! Can’t wait to get back to the studio now.
December 4 and 5 I am participating in a fundraising event benefitting the Eugene Symphony in Oregon. The occasion is the Eugene Symphony Guild’s annual Christmas B&B tour. Marilyn Agusta at Augusta House B&B is hosting me and my work will be displayed throughout her inn for the duration of the tour. Additionally I am donating a large framed print to the fundraiser and visitors will have an opportunity to purchase a chance to win this prize valued at over $800. If you are in the area and would like to attend the tour and have an opportunity to see my work in this beautiful setting, information can be found on the Eugene Symphony Guild website. All works will available for purchase.Learn More
I’ve been very busy lately. I just returned from the Bay Area where I have now established representation with a great gallery in Pleasanton. Studio 7 Fine Arts has been in existence for over 2 decades and has recently been purchased by local businessman and art lover Dirk Christiansen. Art Director Jan Mahood is a top notch skilled curator and gallery director with many years of experience to bring to the gallery. I am so pleased to have been asked to show my work there and hope my Bay Area collectors and friends get a chance to visit the space soon. In addition to 2 dimensional art they carry a broad range of jewerly, sculpture and mixed media as well as providing a full selection of designer framing services. I have a selection of pastels in their inventory now including this large vineyard painting “Autumn Blaze.”Learn More
