Getting ready for the next show...

"Summer Bounty" 20 x 24 oil.

No rest for the weary. I've just returned home from a gallery show in southern California, now I'm back in the studio painting for Art for the Sangres, a very fancy one-evening show (Sept. 26) in Westcliffe, Colorado. The show benefits The San Isabel land trust, saving land for future generations.

It's my fourth year for this wonderful show in a beautiful location at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains (meaning blood-of-Christ). Last year I sold 14 of 18 originals during the four hour show. Almost a sell-out....

Great opening!

SOLD "The Road Less Traveled"

I just returned from the opening for 'Places I Remember', my one-person landscape show at the Santa Ysabel Gallery, Santa Ysabel, California. It's a wide-spot in the road 7 miles west of Julian in San Diego County. The owner, Annie Rowley had a vision of a plein-air/landscape gallery with local artists. I don't live in San Diego County, but I did for many years, so Annie generously made an exception. The gallery has become a mecca for collectors and I'm proud to be part of it.

Many pieces sold at the opening so perhaps the economy is on the mend. The show will remain hanging until October 11th.
