Another art event this last month happened at Coddingtown Mall in Santa Rosa…the annual WASCO Aqua Areas juried watercolor show. I submitted three paintings. This one sold before the show was even juried.
The second, Grace, sold during the show (it’s in a earlier blog…the swan in the sunrise picture). The third entry has sold since the show.
Needless to say, I am one very grateful artist.
Rob and I are off to New York next week. There’s an exhibit of Van Gogh’s “light” paintings, like Starry Night, at the MOMA. Can’t wait to see them. I just finished “The Yellow House” about the six weeks that Gauguin and Van Gogh lived together, and I’m in the middle of one about Manet, Morisot, Degas and Cassatt…I’m ready to look at, not just read about, art and to be inspired even more!
I am an evolving artist living in Petaluma, CA. My work can be seen at the Riverfront Art Gallery in Downtown Petaluma, and over the donor board at Petaluma Valley Hospital. I have been painting seriously with watercolors since 2001 and have currently added paintings using oils, acrylics and encaustic (wax) to my portfolio. The blog will be my attempt to share my new paintings with the wider world. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you are interested in learning more.
