"Looking North" and "Summit from Curry Point " in Exhibition Curated by Jean Stern for the LPAPA Signature Members.



Looking North 16 x 20


Summit from Curry Point 18 x 24

Signature Membership in the Laguna Plein air Painters Association is a challenge to achieve and I am happy to be a part of this organization with strong ties to the plein air tradition in California.

This is a curated exhibit of paintings from within the ranks of the Signature Members.
By my count 44 of the 60 + artists were chosen to exhibit.

Worth mentioning, this organization has close ties to the Irvine Museum Executive Director, Mr Jean Stern and he selected these works. There are 16 Women Artists included, a higher proportion than usual.

"Hollister Peak August" and "Ojai View" in California Art Club's The Plein Air Perspective at Millard Sheets Art Center, Pomona


Hollister Peak August 14 x 14

Ojai View 9 x 12


November 5 to January 28
Reception November 5 , 5 to 7 pm



I entered this exhibit because Millard Sheets was a powerful force in all that is watercolor in California.
 I did a little research on him and found out  he started exhibiting with the California Watercolor Society at 15! Usually I think that artists starting this young have artists for parents, but that's not the case. He was raised on a horse ranch by grandparents who gave him his first art lesson at 7 and he had two aunts who encouraged his artistic talents. I wonder if either one of them was an artist?Millard seems to have been one of the focused ones who chose a path early in life and stuck with it.

Update;

I thought you would like  to see the different frame I used on this one

It is Randy Higbee's Taos grey frame, I have seen it at the Sonoma Plein Air and thought I would give it a try.
