Well, it's time for the California Art Club Gold Medal Show on Saturday. There were sixteen jurors to sift through all the entries, and there is an impressive roster of about 150 artists exhibiting.
This year we are at the Autry, site of the recent Masters of the West Show. That was pretty impressive, so here's hoping we can match the power of that event.
My piece, "Long Beach Farewell" is a view from Cabrillo Beach after a particularly wet and windy storm. I always anticipate the end of Pacific storms, as they give rise to the most gorgeous, clean and interesting skies. This was no exception. This painting shows a balance between the freedom of the skies as it turns over to night, as the industrial dockland weighs below.
