Autumn Art Fest this Saturday

Autumn Art Fest Artists Sept 23, 2017

I’m excited to be in this show.  I’ll be there with originals, prints, cards , ornaments, and magnets on the patio.  Please stop by and say hello!

Here’s one of my latest paintings that I will have available as an original and in matted prints. I’m calling it “Feel the Glow”.

Miniature Mania show opening tonight

It’s an exciting time balancing painting in the studio and outside with the Plein Air Painters group, working and raising teens…never a dull moment! 

 
The Miniature Mania show will be at the Sunland Art Gallery (in the Placita Santa Fe) during March and April.  The opening is tonight, March 5th from 5-7 pm,  complete with wine and finger foods.  I have five paintings in that show and the show is full of potential mother’s day and graduation gifts from lots of artists. We will be selling prints and cards too.  We would love to see you there!

Guest Artist: Jacques Barriac

I’ve blogged before about my friend Jacques Barriac who taught me the matting/framing process. He runs the informal transparent watercolor group in El Paso, and does a fantastic job finding teachers and videos from which we learn. He has been painting for five years, and does precise excellent work! I’ve been wanting to put up some of his beautiful paintings for awhile.

The first two were accepted into the Arts International show this coming Saturday, October 3rd and running through the month of October.   This is the signature event of the Art Association and includes 68 works selected from 145 submitted.  The gala opening is this Saturday from 6-9 pm at the Art Junction, 500 W. Paisano (near the baseball stadium).  The show runs through October, open Tues-Fri 11-4, and Saturdays 11-3.So please come down and check out the show!
