Paintings on the move...

After a comparatively quiet winter, a number of my paintings are heading out on display in various venues. I'm showing several paintings (mostly 'Trees') out at Local Color in Bodega Bay, together with Susan Ball's beautiful work (show continues through May 16th). Wednesday, I'll be hanging paintings at the Santa Rosa Country Club, (showing together with glass artist Kate Black-- there'll be a reception Friday, April 30th); and finally, here in Graton (though not open to the general public) , a number of my paintings are being featured in the lovely guest cottage of Spirit Hill.

flickr fascination

If you've become hooked on the Flickr photo site as a source for endless inspiration & admiration, you'll probably find these diagrams interesting. They compile the changing colors of photos submitted around the calendar year. More info, explanation, links et al here.

A glance at my most recent page of flickr faves shows an upsurge in coral, with accents of turquoise and, as always, yellow.

Final week for Bob & a Beer!

If you live in the East Bay, you have through the end of March to catch our friend Bob Stang's paintings hanging at the (awesome) Albatross Pub in Berkeley, and enjoy a pint of your favorite ale at the same time. More of Bob's work can be seen here.

Detail of a painting in progress-- actually working over the top of some started looong ago & never resolved. This flower-like form is one that actually grew out of a jellyfish for me, and is now showing up in a number of my paintings.

Hey peeps, if you are in fact still out there.
Long time no see. And when did we last have a shot of the pure, design-y exuberance of Brazilian painter Beatriz Milhazes?
