3 new paintings-Successful Artist Retreat

I recently went to Indio with some good friends for an Arts and Craft retreat. I spent 3 days painting. 2 oil paintings and a small watercolor for my Dad’s birthday. All in all it was a wonderful weekend.

The Train Door

My last painting showed me that it IS possible for me to paint while my children are home. In fact, it’s a good thing- it keeps me from baking! This painting is #2 in a new series (I hope) of transportation paintings. This is my daughter Ivy, standing in the doorway of an antique train, which is now a museum in San Diego. I love the light in this painting and in the last. I also love the symbolism of these children looking out into the light from a train. It speaks to me of the promise of future, the wide openness of their lives. What does it say to you?Ivy brighter

New Painting, Ivy Camping

"Ivy Camping" 8"x10" Oil on Canvas

“Ivy Camping” 8″x10″ Oil on Canvas

I finished a quick study of my daughter Ivy last night from a photograph I took while we were camping this winter.  I feel it captures her vivacious spirit and fun personality, not to mention the pure volume that comes with being a 2 year old.  This is a smaller painting, 8″ x 10″ oil on canvas.

Art Show at Cosmos Coffee Cafe

I’m happy to say I’ve been asked to return for another show at Cosmos Coffee Cafe in the La Mesa Village!  The artwork is currently on display and will be exhibited through November 2012.  There’s some new illustrations and a hanful of new paintings along with some older favorites.  The theme is “childhood wonder”.   Stop by and enjoy some art and some fine coffee.  Let me know what you think!

San Diego Art Institute’s Summer Art Sale!

I have submitted 5 paintings to SDAI’s Summer C-note art sale.  The Opening Night is June 4th from 5-8pm.  It’s quite an event!  People come early and scramble to grab paintings right off the gallery wall for purchase.  The paintings are all priced at $100, $200 or $300 dollars.  It’s a great way to collect some of the finest San Diego artist’s work.
