Camera Ready

A few weeks ago, three of my family members swam from Alcatraz Island to Fisherman's Wharf. I went on the boat to cheer them on. It was a Saturday morning and I was cold. Under the circumstances, I kept my thoughts about the temperature to myself. Anyway, while walking down to the boat dock, I turned around and saw this amazing view of the Ghirardelli sign. I didn't have my paints with me, but I did have my camera. Something I've learned over the years is to always carry my camera with me. You never know when you are going to come across a great composition.

SouthwestArt Magazine September 2009 Issue

Well, the September 2009 issue of SouthwestArt magazine is out and I'm proud of my seven page feature article. In case you haven't received your copy in the mail or don't live close to a major bookseller, I have a pdf of the article on my website. I've also updated almost every page of my website and added several collections. Hope you find it a little easier to navigate.

Painting with Friends

I've been friends with Amanda Fish and Larry Bates for years. They are both wonderful Orange County artists. They came up for a weekend visit. Today we enjoyed painting on Mare Island, a few minutes walk from my home.
Tomorrow, we will paint in Napa which is only a 30 minute drive from the house. Life doesn't get much better.
