One of my bucket list items has been accomplished with a recent trip to Giverny, France. Seeing Claude Monet’s studio and two gardens was a highlight of my France trip. Being within an hour or so of Paris, it made it well worth the visit. Our guide mentioned that Monet’s grave was at the church cemetery in town. It was well worth the 15 minute walk from his home. The church was open and it was surreal to walk inside as well as the grounds around his unassuming grave.

This painting also uses Broken Color. This technique creates color harmony by interweaving complimentary colors throughout the entire painting.

Recently, I was contacted by SouthwestArt magazine for a Where Art They Now Portfolio for their October 2013 issue. I was originally highlighted as an Emerging Artist in their August 2006 issue. International Artist magazine also contacted me about an instructional article. I’m not positive on which issue it will appear, but am honored to be included in one of their upcoming issues. For those interested, below is a list of previous articles in which I have been featured.

Today, I drove to The Haggin Museum in Stockton, California. The 15th National Exhibition of the American Society of Marine Artists started in October 2011 and will conclude its 8 Museum stop in July 2013. These museums have been from Florida to California and the Haggin Museum was a little over an hour from my home.
I was honored to see Wine Barrel Boats, my16 x 20 oil painting which has been touring with the exhibition again. I enjoyed walking around this historic museum and am proud to be a part of this experience.
