“The 12 Days of Drawing Sale” 11


Don’t miss out on these one-of-a-kind original drawings!

“Rooster” For some years I volunteered for one evening a week at our county animal shelter, showing dogs and cats to potential adopters, taking the dogs for walks, playing with the cats etc. I came in one day to see a small group of chickens in one of the outdoor enclosures, including this rooster. They’d been spotted walking down a road. Animal Control managed to catch them. They were all adopted pretty quickly.

Three New Small Works

Coming up soon is North Coast Open Studios the weekend of June 12-13 and, the following weekend, June 19-20, the Marin Art Festival. I’ll have framed paintings, prints and cards at both events, plus a variety of small, unframed affordable original oil paintings. I’ve been doing new ones in between working on larger paintings and it’s a nice way to take a break from the more complex pieces.

I generally do these in two sittings, plus maybe one more short one for final tweaking and try to keep them fairly loose and simple.

Coming up: a new on-going series on how to improve your paintings, based on all the mistakes and false starts I’ve made over the fifteen years I’ve been painting in oil. So it will be a looong series. ;0)
