a little more fabulous

Took one more painting up to Ma(i)sonry, so I took the time to take some additional photos of the space where my art is hanging. The room is lovely and I must say, everything (meaning art) seems to look better on stone. How did I not know this? Has this been going on for a long time and no one let me know?

There is a natural richness inherent to stone and the myriad colors within and in this case sits beautifully with the colors with which I paint. I'm a changed painter.

this last image is the new work I dropped off late this week, called "order from chaos" It's an abstract palette knife painting of cypress trees. Again, the art on the stone wall. If there's a better combination out there, I haven't seen it.

Just a little slice of fabulous...

Yesterday I arrived at Maisonry and was able to hang five paintings, all in their first floor main room. It's where all the fabulous people enter, look around and can't believe that they've arrived somewhere so...fabulous. I can't help it, this gallery is a show stopper of fabulosity.
I took a few photos whilst I was there, but really must go back to get some higher quality shots. And, get this, the owner was on his way in, expected for a magazine shoot there. I couldn't get any luckier, me thinks. Hopefully, one of my paintings will land inside of the magazine...Always fun to see ones own work in print. (with the fabulous people, of course)

don't you think this painting of the birch trees is fantastic with this chair and that stone wall? Oh, and that weird feret print on the floor is no longer there, lest you lose sleep...

Big News for me!

Yes, big news here in my little pocket of art: I'll be showing art at Maisonry Napa Valley!
Prepare yourselves, cause the website gives you just a wee snapshot of all of the delightful experiences that are merely waiting for your presence in order to astound....
Intrigued? You should be.
Sexy, irreverent, approachable. No, I'm not referring to the online connection you've been thinking about- I'm talking about Maisonry itself: part tasting room, part gallery, part lifestyle seduction.
I'll be showing about five paintings and am very excited to be part of the experience at Maisonry. It is so worth your trip to Yountville. If you come to visit on the May 1 and 2 weekend, you can stop by to see me at Gstudio first, then straight up to Yountville for a lovely late afternoon at Maisonry. Plan a weekend of it. I hope you can.
