California Art Club: Celebrating the Golden State Juried Exhibition

Five O' Clock Shadow, 14 x 14 watercolor, lower right

The opening for this exhibit was last night and fellow CAC Artist member Larry Cannon was there and kind enough to send me these photos of the exhibit.( thanks Larry) The exhibit runs through June ( at the Old Mill, SanMarino) so I hope to get to see it sometime before it is over. It is an intimate space and the works are medium to small. I think the photo Larry sent shows an excellent job of installation.
Some artists don't like to be hung on the bottom of a double hanging, but I take it as a compliment! Having installed a fair number of shows myself, it is usually the strong paintings that can have enough presence to be below.
I was going for a bold approach with strong lighting. My piece is "5 O'Clock Shadow"(Lower right) and it was painted between 4:45 and 5:30 in beautiful Carmel Valley.
