Day of Emeralds

This is my favorite painting from the spring. I want to crop it into a square and make it even more abstract as my demo for open studios. It is Mount Diablo from the neighborhood Magee Ranch. If the new version is a succes I will post it here.

Open Studios June 2 and 3, Nancy Dodds ,Carmel until 6/8

This is ALMOST SUMMER my favorite painting on display at the Nancy Dodds Gallery, Carmel , until June 8. As a Mom , summer means something completely different than summer vacation!
I am busily getting ready for open studios at my house on June 2 and 3, from 11 to 5 both days. I will be painting from paintings as my demos since I can not paint from photos and my garden is pretty bedraggled.. You can check out my plein air watercolors at picasaweb.google.com/robin.purcell . I hope to be able to post new work here as I paint it. You can email me for directions to my studio in Danville CA at robin.purcell@gmail.com

Painting from the festival




Carmel Art Festival

I have just returned from the 2007 Carmel Art Festival and Plein Air Painting Competition. My painting "Hill at Carmel Valley" took an Honorable Mention Award and I sold all three paintings.
