“Our Natural World” Art Exhibit

I am participating in a group exhibition at the Twin Pines Art Center in Belmont, California that takes place February 5th thru February 27th. The petite painting shown above is hanging, as well as another coordinating painting of a single tree. The Art Center is in the historic Manor House and is a beautiful venue in which to hang out and take in the art. Besides the welcoming gallery, the trees and open space in Twin Pines Park help make it a place you will likely want to visit again once you have gone there.

You are invited to the opening reception on Sunday, February 9th from 2pm to 4pm. You can see more details by clicking HERE or on the “Current/Past Shows” tab above. I may miss the beginning of the reception so I can attend my daughter’s last performance in her school’s winter play but do plan to attend. Let me know if you’re counting on me being there so I’ll be sure to make it asap!

“New Beginnings” in Daly City

This large painting is currently being shown in the City Hall Atrium Gallery in Daly City, California. The opening was a wonderfully successful evening with hundreds of people in attendance. It coincided with a celebration of David Canepa’s inaugural term as mayor. He has been instrumental in bringing art back to City Hall and this show, which showcases 22 artists from the peninsula chapter of Women’s Caucus for Art, is the first display in many years at the gallery. The diverse pieces have been well received and add a welcome element of color and creativity to the space.

My work is steadily becoming more confident and I was told this piece spoke to a number of people at the opening. There was one woman in particular who many thought must have a special connection as she looked strikingly like the blonde in the painting. Many, seeing the resemblance, simply said “Wow! She should buy it.” :-)

To view when and where to visit the show click HERE or on the “Current/Past Shows” tab above. The exhibit runs through March. I hope you get a chance to see this show as it is a special one.

Figurative: “Girl in Blue”

Here's a recent figurative painting that I've been able to digitize to share. There are more that will hopefully soon be photographed so I can upload. I've found that it's not always the best idea to stop the momentum of painting, so I will continue... :-)

Cellist in Brugge

Yet another small 5"x5" painting. This is of a man playing the cello on a bench in Brugge, Belgium. I'm still inspired by our travels from over a year ago. There are no great trips planned in our near future beyond more college visits. Hmm.... I wonder if Northfield, Minnesota will inspire any artworks?
