Vallejo Museum group show: Wilderness 50

Celebrating a half-century of the Wilderness Act, a group offellow landscape artists are showing scenes from protected American wilderness. I chose a favorite spot close to home. Just off the Limantour Road, the Muddy Hollow trailhead gives access to the coastal marshes, lagoons and Limantour beach. Or you can walk north toward Home Bay. I love the first open area after you wander through the alders and cross the creek. The trail is to your right; willows in the distance to the left block the view of the ocean.

Show is up September 4–October 11 2016.

Great work by the other artists!

All-Berkeley Landscape show

Our Monday East Bay Landscape Painters are putting together an exhibit of work painted in Berkeley. Several of my pieces will be showing. It should be lots of fun, with all sorts of locales and styles represented. The show starts September 13, with a reception Friday, September 20. See you there!

Here is a little 18″ square painting that will be there:

Trail Crossing, Urban Ore


    Recently I complained to a group of friends that something was missing in my artistic life: A permanent studio for live figure drawing, where the fun creative setups could remain and evolve, artists could get together to explore changing themes, and different approaches to working from the model could be explored.

    Wei piped up that she had half a warehouse space that wasn’t being used; would I like to try something there. When I found out it was near I-80 on Gilman, had natural light and its own parking lot, I got really excited!

    That’s how we started. Wei and I want it to be the place where local artists can meet, learn, and evolve their ideas.

    Landscape showing at the Milk Bar

    My friend Mary Armentrout and her dad, Steve Armentrout have a personal gallery open Sunday afternoons, 2–5 PM. It’s at Steve’s house on Blake Street in Berkeley.

    That’s 1518 Blake Street at Sacramento Street, Berkeley. They’ll have my landscapes up through August 24. We’ll have a little closing party that afternoon, if you’d like to visit.

    Here’s one of the paintings:
