Paint Pink




Last night I went to Calexico to the Paint Pink show reception.  This is a breast-cancer awareness themed show – and the requirements were anything to do with breast-cancer or anything pink.







PP1The reception was quite well attended – I got there a little late so some had already left.  One thing that I did notice was that most of the work was very small!



It was wonderful though to see that there were quite a few sales.




PP3My work was definitely the largest there – and I didn’t even photo most of it. You can just see the two smallest ones on the right here.  The ones I chose to take were my most pink work, I don’t have anything specifically to do with breast cancer.


Mixed Weather in Calexico

calexico1This morning I delivered about 60 paintings to the Carmen Durazo Cultural Center in Calexico for my solo show “Mixed Weather”.  (I say ‘about’ because I’m not sure how many are in the mat bin.)  Sandra Tauler helped set up the show, unboxing while I went around hammering and hanging, and matching the labels up with the artwork while I gathered the boxes and corralled them back into the truck.  We turned it all around in just over 2 hours.

On Thursday, 6-8pm, we will hold the reception.  I like showing the paintings hanging in place – it gives a different perspective than just seeing the image on the website.  Come over and see the paintings closer up if you live in the area.  Some have poetry painted into them also.

A dozen students and a box of watercolor pieces

Take a box of watercolor pieces, add mats, matching foamcores, glue, brushes and twelve students.  The result?  Lots of fun, loads of creativity and quite a few who would like to do it again on the 9th.  Several of the students had the time to do multiple artworks. If you live in the Calexico area, I have one more youth class this month, and two adult classes.  Check out the options on the Calexico brochure online.
