Macy’s Burbank “Dreams” Art Show

Now until the end of Fall artwork will be hanging at the Macy’s in Burbank in a show titled “Dreams.” It features artwork hand-drawn by local children and members of the Burbank Art Association. Below are some fuzzy photos from my phone.

Another painting from my “palette knife” phase gets picked for a show. Hmm. I think it’s a sign.

‘Plane’ Air Painting in Paso Robles, California

I began searching for a place to paint, hopefully with some of the gorgeous farmland as a backdrop. I wandered down a strip of road flanked on both sides by an automotive swap meet and open fields. Capping off the swap meet in the middle of the road were parked two planes from the museum. I walked around and found a the angle I wanted and set up the easel. As I painted, many people came by to see what I was doing, and some even took photos! It was very breezy that day and I had to clamp down the canvas to keep it from flying away. I ended up with a sunburn and the painting posted here.

Now I see why many painters are inspired by the rolling hills and patches of farmland in Central California.

My painting wins a ribbon!

I was pleasantly surprised that my entry in the BAA Spring Show won a ribbon for second place in the landscape division. The painting is “Brace Canyon – Yellow.” I originally was going to enter a painting of my cat, but the BAA just had a show called “Feathers and Whiskers” so I figured maybe they had seen enough cats. This painting to me was always a good example of when the palette knife works the best. I should do more…
