The Arty Party

It's that time of year again when the Shrivers in Portuguese Bend invite about 20 very varied artists to show their work in the family courtyard. I have been showing there for ages and it's always a lot of hard work and fun. Meet lots of great people and all sorts of great things happen. It's a great way to buy some last-minute Christmas goodies, have some wine and socialize. It's this Sunday, the 22nd of December. Contact me if you'd like more info…….

Redondo Wall - Redondo Beach, California

"Redondo Wall" is a very recent creation. Pastel over watercolor washes on a very heavy paper. I was inspired by my recent trip to Great Britain where I saw many marine scenes. This picture is currently on view - and - available at the 608 North Fine Art Gallery in Redondo Beach.

The Coastguard's Lawn

This painting took various forms before I could get it right. After quite a few attempts to do a conventional plein air from this elevated spot overlooking Point Vicente Lighthouse in Palos Verdes, I left the lighthouse out completely and created a composition about the remaining contrast of the manicured coastguard property set amid nature's wilderness.
