Article about the Salton Sea

I had heard that Bombay Beach is such a close-knit community, it’s one of the last places that you can let your kid run the streets in safety, but I had not realized it was becoming such an artists’ community. I guess they reach out to LA artists more than local ones…..

Here’s the full article on the Palm Springs Life website.

Newer work #82

Some of my newer pieces are just flying off the wall.  No, it hasn’t been windy, it’s just that a few are going out at every show, which ends up being before I can post them.  So, before the next show this weekend, here’s one of the new babies.  It’s one of those where the writing is more obvious.  It says “Chance will take you places you would never go alone.”

Veteran Arts Start-up

One of the galleries I work with, Vanguard Gallery in Moreno Valley, is on a mission to create a Veteran Artists Cooperative.  Rick’s ultimate hope is to create a Museum of Veteran Art in Southern California – but the cooperative is a good place to start.  It would be wonderful if you feel you can contribute a few dollars to the project.  Or if you are willing to share this to others who might.

Riverside Art Museum Membership Show

I arrived at the reception for the Riverside Art Museum Membership show later than intended (ah, traffic in Temecula) and just caught the tail end of the awards.  Ran into a friend of mine – r. mike nichols.  He hadn’t won an award, and neither had I, apparently, but his friend Mike had.  Here are some images from the show.

Did you guess which one was mine?  It’s the one behind the pig’s ear…..  Actually I kinda like that pig. 

Painting in its forever home.

My client that I met at Calabasas had commissioned me to create a repeat of a small painting in a larger size for a space in the guest bathroom.  He lives close enough to my other half that I was able to deliver.  Here’s ‘Ron’s Red Morning’ in it’s place.

One of the highlights of this month’s Skyscapes newletter is the honorable mention in an international ‘Skies‘ competition.

 

Newer work #81

Well, a couple of paintings from a recent batch ended up going to forever homes before I had time to post them here!  Better get a few more up before the next show takes them away (I hope).  Though there are a few I wish I could hang onto for a while before they fledge the nest.
