I was delighted to have both my submissions accepted into the 5th Annual Skies Art Exhibition with Fusion Art. Of course being a favorite subject of mine, I had to spend a lot of time looking at the other entries! Have a look yourself, there are some stunning paintings and photography in there.
And just so you know these paintings don’t always just go to art fairs and in galleries, I love the opportunity to show online also! I don’t have to consider the distance I have to transport or mail it, or the take-in/out schedule. I entered a couple paintings in the Art Room Gallery ‘Shades of Gray’ show, and not only had one accepted, but won a merit award.
I should have done this last week, but sometimes things don’t get on a list…. anyway, these shows are still up for a few weeks left, so if you’re in the area, there’s still time to enjoy them.
The 29Palms Art Gallery has the Guild Summer show in the Main and Center Galleries, and in the West Gallery, Tim Warren and Ted Wright in a 2-person show.
The 29 Palms Gallery is open Thursday-Sunday 11-3pm.
Another of the three created for the Abstract Detritus show at the Borrego Art Institute last year. I had a lot of fun with these.
#1458 “Handle”. Reclaimed items on upcycled panel. 10×17″ $60.
So for covid, I pretty much stopped producing original work and spent time on three books, three commissions, a lot of house repairs and working for the census. So I have now realized I haven’t posted any ‘Newer work’ in a while and need to catch up. There are a lot of half finished pieces, and more in the works. This and the next couple pieces were produced last year for a specific ‘Abstract Detritus’ show in Borrego Springs. They didn’t sell, so they go into my regular ‘show stock’.
#1457 “Treasure”. 10×17″ reclaimed objects on upcycled panel. 10×17″ $60.

… a real friend will help you paint a body.
Read the story of the bodies in this month’s Newsletter.
I was delighted to receive an email yesterday that let me know my submission to their ‘Seasons’ online show was included. I love the online shows as I’m able to enter some of my larger pieces that would otherwise not be shippable to a distant gallery.
Was delighted to get an email yesterday that my painting ‘Wiest Lake’ was included in the Fusion Art Waterscapes online exhibition. Thank you Chris and Valerie Hoffman!
I was blessed with the help from a friend from Chaparral Artists – Nancy Miehle, who offered to take work in for me to the show, to save me a trip last week. Last Saturday I had been gallery sitting at 29Palms Art Gallery and on the way home stopped at Rainbow Stew to see the Chaparral Artists‘ judged show, that Rainbow Stew hosts in the central gallery. There were three categories “The Hand of Man”, “Nature’s Kaleidoscope” and “Beautiful Creatures”. It wasn’t a huge show, but I was delighted to find that both Nancy and I had won ribbons!
