American Legacy Fine Arts "Fleeting Moments" 2nd Biennial Works en plein air

 Becalmed (Dog Beach) 11 x 14
Lupine of the Storm 14 x 18

I am very pleased to share that I have been invited to show in this exhibit with some of the plein air artists I admire.

These two paintings put me back  in the moment  they were painted so I chose to submit them.

"Becalmed" makes me hear the muted sounds the surf makes on an overcast day with no wind.

"Lupine of the Storm" was a wonderful moment of winter overlapping spring in the Coachella Desert. I met other painters while painting here and found out that once lupine has been pollinated it shifts from blue to lavender and purple.

L A Arboretum exhibit with the California Art Club "Captured on Canvas"


This is what the sapphire tower really looks like. It's a bizarre succulent from the mountains of Peru and during last year's super bloom it put on a spectacular show. It looks alien with a palette of colors not seen very often in nature.


"Sapphire Tower" 20 x 16 is on exhibit now to January 16, 2020 in "Captured on Canvas" at the Arboretum Library with an opening reception on November 2 from 2 to 4 pm. A California Art Club exhibit.

I am thrilled to announce I have been invited to paint with a wonderful group of artists in THE plein air event of southern California, the Laguna Plein Air Invitational!

It will be challenging since I am still very much learning and experimenting with coastal wave and rock scenes!

If you are in Southern California it is well worth the trip

The dates are Oct 5 to 13 and you can find a detailed event schedule at https://lpapa.org/laguna-plein-air-invitational/
