Free shipping

I now have quite a few products available on Society6.com – and until May 19th, I have a free-shipping promo link.  Just in case you wanted to get a tshirt or something.  They have loads of stuff – clocks, towels, iphone covers, shower curtains, in addition to lots of options on reproductions for the wall.

Here’s the FREE SHIPPING link.

If you have a favorite painting that I haven’t yet put up on Society6 and you would like to order something with that image, let me know.  If I have a decent image, I can upload it reasonably quickly.

May show at the Vanguard

Artwork about to be hung at Vanguard Gallery

The organizing of it!

On May 1st, I hung the month’s show at the Vanguard Gallery in Moreno Valley.  I’d had a short lead-time to select an artist and this time there were quite a few people I asked that weren’t able to put a show together in time.  I was concerned until I called Raini Armstrong, and it seemed like the dates for take-in, reception and pick-up fit together so perfectly, it was just meant to be.   I met Raini and first saw her work at Rainbow Stew in Yucca Valley.  She and I ‘hung’ together on more than one occasion there, and it was my pleasure to have her at Vanguard.  The show will be up all month, and if you’re in the area, the reception will be 4-6pm on May 12th.

 

National Orange Show

I don’t paint oranges (well, I do sometimes, but they’re typically mistaken for the setting or rising sun), so my two entries are in the ‘open theme’ category.  Serendipitously they were hung close together so I am able to show them both in one photo that I took at the reception yesterday evening.  The other thing that they have in common is that they did not win any prizes.  Oh well.  I had some interesting comments about them.

Monthly Mailing May

Here’s my monthly mailing newsletter – reaching out to everyone with whom I cannot reach out face to face.

The end of a class

Over the winter I have been teaching an intermediate watercolor class at a gated community in La Quinta.  I’ve done a number of exercises that have produced multiple paintings in a category that I don’t usually sell work in.  Now that the classes are coming to an end, I have a set of perfectly good paintings in a box kicking around the bottom of the studio.  So, Etsy time!  Here are three paintings I put up this morning, ready to go to a new home for a reasonable price. $80!

Calexico 110th birthday art show.

Yesterday evening was the reception for the Calexico 110th birthday celebration at the Carmen Durazo Cultural Arts center. The art show had 110 pieces of art in there. Fortunately it’s a big hall, and there were some paintings in the lobby of which I didn’t take photos.
The reception was well attended and there was a short speech by the Mayor, followed by a group photo of all the participating artists that were present.  Enjoy the show!
