Helped with the take-in judging for this year's Fifth Anniversary Member Exhibition at the Manhattan Beach Creative Arts Center. Marj Lightie, Dori Dewberry and I spent a very concentrated few hours assessing the many entries from our 100 + members. Though the hard work was on Friday where the hanging committee got to work putting all the creations up on the walls. My two pieces are Wilmington Colors and Redondo Wave.

The Exhibition runs from April 26 - May 16 2014

Please join us at the Opening Reception May 3 from 6-9pm

Saying Goodbye ...

"Redondo Wall" is a watercolor with pastel and is the result of many experiments of paint and media.
Sold it today at the Malaga Cove Art Show to a former P V resident who now lives in Texas.
When paintings work and are successful, they are difficult to part with. Like your kids at certain times......

I still enjoy the transparency of this water and the power of its foam..

This weekend, April 12th & 13th is the first of six weekend Art on the Lawn Shows through September 2014, at the Malaga Cove Plaza on Palos Verdes Drive West, in Palos Verdes Estates.
