Wanna Color?

The little carved dog has been in my collection, along with the Panda, for a long time. So, it was fun to pair them up and imagine they are having a "play time". Probably dogs and pandas don't normally get along, but in a painting anything is possible.

Alta (Lido)

I know, this was already on my blog, but I inadvertently deleted it when trying to upload the new (hopefully improved) version of it. I added more color to the man's shirt and felt that added a lot to the picture. Previously it was gray and rather dull. Anyway, this is a restaurant in Lido in Newport Beach that has wonderful food and great coffee. It is very popular!! I saw this scene from down the block at Cannery Paints where I occasionally take a class from Dana Cooper. During the day we get to go eat at Alta's.

Rose Impression #1

Rose Impression #1 has been juried into the Randy Higbee 6" x 6" show in Costa Mesa. The gala opening is December 3rd. There will be a lot of talent there and the interesting thing about the show is that every piece of art can only be 6" x 6". Please try to attend the gala or come by later to view the show. Address is: 102 Kalmus Drive, Costa Mesa. (Very near the 55 freeway).

Studio Dog

This cutie dog is always present at the studio where I occasionally take a workshop. He is so gorgeous! Very friendly and curious about everything. In this painting he is peering up over a split door to see what is going on.
