Tracy Grand Theater Art Gallery

Today a friend and I braved the stormy weather to drive to Tracy to enter new work for a show there. To my delight, William said he wanted to keep two of my paintings from the previous show.  He said he liked them so much and the colors are beautiful in the display.  What a nice surprise.  And he took 6 more paintings as well for the next show which will continue through December.   This is such a lovely art galley in the Tracy Grand Theater complex.  I hope you can get a chance to visit and see my work.  William is also going to display 6 of my paper cranes, so that will be nice to see.  Below are photos of some of the work which will be on display.

Monterey Artists Open Studio Tour Sept 24 & 25th 2016

My friend, Tamara Keiper, and I had a great time displaying our art at the Monterey County Arts Open Studio Tour.  We were at a beautiful house above Monterey Bay and I was lucky to be located in the dining room and kitchen.  I set up my display with my new paintings, cranes, note cards and a few prints.  In one corner I had my easel and incredibly I was actually able to work on a small painting on Sunday.  

Tamara worked so hard to the signs ready to direct folks to our studio and her husband and a friend helped by getting them put up. 

Carolyn was our greeter and helped us by getting folks to sign the guest book.  Tamara had a beautiful display of her work as well.  Be sure and click on the link to her website.   We had refreshments and a friendly group of people stop by and visit with us.  

A little of Tamara's display of wonderful paintings!
On Sunday it was really hot for the coast and we only had a few visitors.  We think they all went to the beach!  Not really a bad idea.  I want to thank all those who did stop by and visit with us.  It was a lovely weekend.   

I had my decorated paper lanterns on display too!
Just look at those Daily Paintings!

My easel set up in the corner!  Even got a painting started!

Some of my paintings on easels next to my multiple crane display rack.
I tried out my new display A frame.  I am happy with it.
