Art exhibit in Manhattan Beach

I signed on to participate in a FOLA art event in conjunction with the Manhattan Beach Spring Open House yesterday evening, May 19th. However, due to some bad planning on my mother’s part, I found myself in Alvarado Hospital in San Diego instead, waiting for mom’s angioplasty procedure to begin.

I am blessed to have the support of two wonderful men: my beloved Lawrence along with friend and artist Bob Francis, who brought several of my paintings to {pages}, a book store — a great new bookstore on Manhattan Avenue in Manhattan Beach — set them up, and showed my art in my stead. Thanks, guys!

P.S. Mom is home already, and doing fine.

Friends at exhibit: Steve, Maggie, Lawrence, Amelia, Bob -- and Gary, who took the photo -- I love you all!

FOLA Fundraiser Show

Thanks to my dear friends who came out to the Foundation of Local Artists fundraiser for FOLA and the Young at Art group, at the Manhattan Country Club last night. I had a great time speaking to people about my work, and five of my Bertha Series paintings were on display.

Click on the Bertha Portrait series to see which ones were at the show.

Artwork of all the participants is still available on the FOLA sales website:


All sales made in the next three weeks will still benefit the Young at Art group, which presents art classes for children of all ages at local area schools.
