The opening was fun! The show is beautiful! I was so happy to see some dear old friends, who made the trip down to the South Bay from the Palisades and Cheviot Hills. Thank you — it means a lot to me!

This Saturday, May 21,  2:00 p.m. at the Manhattan Beach Creative Art Center, Ruth Trotter, who curated this show, will be doing a critique of the work. I always learn so much when I attend events like this, and I will be there taking notes.

Right after that, at 4:00 p.m., fellow RBAG member Bob Mackie will be doing a demo at Cannery Row Studios, where he has a wonderful solo show. His cloisonne work is gorgeous, and I can’t wait to see how he does it.

I invite you to join me at these two events — Come be inspired!

Two New Paintings

Two of my favorite paintings are part of Bertha Series Five. All grown up in their beautiful white frames!

November 2010: These two paintings were developed at the same time, and look nice viewed together.  Ford Falcon was exhibited at the 2nd Annual FOLA (Foundation of Local Art) Fundraiser, along with about 9 other paintings. That evening, I was given the opportunity to speak to the audience about my work. The feedback I received afterward was interesting. People seemed to enjoy what I had to say about my process. It was a good experience for me.
