Splash 12

I'm very pleased to announce that I will be included in Splash 12, the latest in the Splash series from North Light publishers. The book is scheduled to come out in May 2011.
Coincidentally they selected a companion piece to the Bartholomew Park Winery painting below. Like Bartholomew Park, the original painting was done during the 2009 Sonoma Plein Air event. This view shows the fountain in the Sonoma Plaza. Since the plein air original sold, I redid the view in my studio at a larger size.

Treasures of the East Bay, California Art Club

This painting of the pergola at Lake Merritt in Oakland is featured in the California Art Club's ongoing juried exhibit at the Alameda County Law Library. The show runs through July 9th.
Like the Bartholomew Park Winery painting below, this one was based on an on site sketch. After cleaning it up a bit I painted it at a larger size in my studio.

41st National Exhibition-California Watercolor Association

I am pleased to announce that my painting Bartholomew Park was selected for exhibition in the 41st Annual Exhibit of the California Watercolor Association. This is a studio version of a painting I did last year during the Sonoma Plein Air event. That field sketch was sold, so I had to redo it!
