Aloha! Hawaiian Inspiration

Aloha! I recently returned from a month long visit along the Kalapana coast on the Big Island of Hawaii. I was hosted by Arthur Johnsen, island painter extraordinaire, and my dear friend Lorn. Lorn built a gorgeous new ‘guest’ house where he now displays his lovely art collection; he’s got a great eye. He hung both my Ganesha painting and also my Lovers woodcarving…tastefully framed into a sliding door. Arthur Johnsen, whose brilliant paintings are also on display on Lorn’s walls, honored and hosted me for 10 days, where I had fun exploring his exquisite tropical gardens along the lava field. He let me use his studio to paint and I attended the life-drawing sessions weekly in his cathedral-like studio. I invite you to see more pics and videos on my  facebook page:

My paintings are up!

Good news! My paintings are in an exciting local gallery in San Rafael in Marin County.

I’m excited to join an artist collective at the Aurora Artists Studio located on 4th St and D St in San Rafael, CA. We are a group of figurative painters and photographers.

Come visit and check out some of my pleinair and still-life paintings. I have some gorgeous floral still-life paintings on display in the main gallery.

Aurora Arts Studio is open to the public Tue-Sat, 11:30 -5pm.

We’ll be participating in Second Fridays Art Walk in downtown San Rafael. Come on by. My paintings are priced to sell!
