Traditionally my paintings sell their best in a standard rectangular size, like 22 x 28 or 36 x 48, but I think there is a huge audience looking for something a little different. Long and narrow sizes work really well with seascapes and cityscapes and people really seem to like them.
Hooray! July is here and it's time for the annual Art and Equestrian Festival in Petaluma. I've been working on new horses for the event and even have some floating frames coming for them.
This is my third year participating and it's always fun seeing my horsey friends and meeting new ones too.
COCA -The Coalition of California Artists has started a gallery in the former Shawna Stoney Showroom. The official last day of the showroom was June 30th and it felt so good tearing off the "store closing" signs and putting up a gallery opening sign in it's place. The art is on the walls and I've never seen our space look so beautiful.
Artists presented in a first group show include COCA artists and friends,
Roberta Ahrens, Katerina Connearney, Raymond Difley, Linda
Donohue, Hilla Hueber, Jennifer Bec Hirshfield, Andrzej M. Karwacki,
Catherine McCauley, Misho, Linda Saytes, Valerie Scott, Mylette Welch.
Please join me and the other artists for our Gallery Opening Celebration on Friday, July 13th from 5pm - 8pm at COCA Gallery 390 Kansas Street @ 17th Street in San Francisco.
