Waiting on the Waves

My local strip of California beach is notorious for small summer surf and I couldn't be more excited for the fall waves to be rolling in. With sizes of 5-6 ft waves making a morning search for the perfect wave a welcome retreat.

Waiting on the Waves is an original oil pastel drawing on archival watercolor paper;
8 x 12 inches (20.32 x 30.48 cm).
Original drawing available in my Etsy shop; prints available on Imagekind.

The Sketchbook Project

Art House Co-op has become an intriguing place to find creative inspiration and an exciting variety of artists work to browse. I’m joining in the fun with their latest BIG event The Sketchbook Project~Tour 2011.

It’s pretty simple…sign up, pick a theme, when your sketchbook arrives~FILL IT UP and send it back. All the sketchbooks collected will go on tour across the United States in 2011 for anyone to see and when the tour is over they will be on permanent view at the Brooklyn Art Library.

Probably not surprising to some who know me but my theme of choice for my sketchbook is “Make Mine a Double” so come back again when I have some drawings to share from the pages of my book (and I’m sure a few recipes for tasty concoctions).

I Madonnari Festival 2010

Tools for this weekend’s warriors.

It's a perfectly breezy weekend in San Luis Obispo and the artists have gathered for street painting in the Mission Plaza downtown. The I Madonnari Festival allows artists of every age to enjoy a space and express in bold vibrant color.

I strolled along the plaza yesterday in the late afternoon and found many images well on their way of completion even though the festival still continues today.

Do You See What I See?

The Showroom for the Paso Robles Art Association is currently a showcase for abstract and non-objective artwork titled "Do You See What I See?" Part of the fun of this show is featured in the wall tags that are hidden from the viewer allowing them to interpret the work how they want to without being swayed by the title.

Included in the exhibit is my original acrylic collage Fortune; a piece that incorporates altered, recycled magazine pages in a kaleidoscope pattern.

Fortune is a work on paper, 10 x 11 inches (25.4 x 27.94 cm). It is matted and framed in a perfectly coordinated gold and teal with UV protective plexi-glass.
