Thomas Reynolds Gallery Exhibit

I learned last week that I am one of 21 Northern California California Art Club members who have been juried into an exhibit at the Thomas Reynolds Gallery in San Francisco. I am fortunate to have two pieces selected, North Anchorage, Golden Gate Bridge and Bartholomew Park Eucalyptus. The Artists' Reception is Sunday, January 9, from 3-5 PM. The show opens January 8, 2011 and runs through February 19.

Surprise Award

I was very surprised and flattered to learn that my painting, Lamayuru Chorten, earned the First Place award at the Triton Museum of Art Statewide Watercolor exhibition. I was also pleased that my friends Sue Johnston and Frank Ansley took Second and Third place and Chris Beck earned an Honorable Mention. It's a very good show and well worth a visit.

California Art Club 100th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition

I'm pleased to just learn that my painting, Fountain, Sonoma Plaza, has been selected for inclusion in the California Art Club's 100th Annual Gold Medal Juried Exhibition. The exhibit takes place from April 3-24 at the Pasadena Museum of California Art. This was my first year of eligibility, so I feel quite fortunate to have been accepted.

North Tower Study

I got a request to see my pencil study for North Tower Nocturne, so here it is. I think you can see some of the compositional struggle here.

North Tower Nocturne.

Here is a slightly different approach to painting the Golden Gate bridge I did a couple of days ago.
