acrylic on cradled panel

Sorry if this came to your mail box twice! I was experiencing technical difficulties.

This is the pet bird of a family friend who has been very helpful to my Mom. Thanks Scott and Edie!

Acrylic on cradled panel

It's been awhile because our computer died. I think I figured out a work around with BlogPad Pro.

This year seems to be going by so fast. Maybe it's a whirl because of the many deadlines I am trying to meet. There are work deadlines, boat projects and of course artwork dates. There are a couple of shows I hope to enter this summer. One of them is the 59th Juried Exhibition at The Haggin Museum. It's a national exhibit (gulp!). It will be an honor if "Al" gets in.

I recently attended "Fresh Works" another juried show. Both of my paintings "Cafe" and "Dinner Party" were selected with "Dinner Party" receiving a merit award! It was an interesting reception. I think it was the first time I heard a judge, in this case, Richard Ambrose, talk about the selection process. He looked for skill and also work that spoke to him. What an honor it was to be there!

Mr. Ambrose is the executive director of the Richmond Art Center in Richmond, CA. There is a current exhibit (3/19-5/22/16) of Bay Area figurative artist David Park and there is no admission fee to the gallery!
