Gearing up for the big art show

August 25, 2010 at 4:09 pm 2 comments

I’ve been quietly painting this summer. Now that my next big art show is just around the corner, the painting is taking on a certain urgency. I can only take finished paintings to the show, so now I’m pushing to finish up several paintings that I’ve been working on. It remains to be seen how many actually get finished in time!

Here’s a sneak peek at two of the paintings I’m working on right now. These two are done, or close enough that they’ll definitely make the cut.

I'm an artist. I make paintings with dots.

I work in acrylic paint, in a couple of distinct styles: landscapes and abstracts.

Native to California, I've lived elsewhere and only recently returned to my home state. I now live in Los Angeles.

I mostly show my art in outdoor festivals in California. I also occasionally show my work in art galleries or open studio events. You can see an up-to-date list of upcoming shows on my website (click here).

I invite you to sign up to receive my free email newsletter, in which I list my upcoming shows and talk about my latest work. I send it irregularly, a few times a year.
