Victor Celebrates the Arts

I am in Victor Colorado painting for the Victor Celebrates the Arts. All our freshly painted pieces are due in on Friday morning framed and ready to sell. This little old school house even had a bell tower still intact. The old mining town has restored building in the downtown area, old ranches, deserted building, old mining equipment and beautiful scenery. The weather is perfect with around 74 degrees a few showers here and there. I find that the coolest part of painting the old equipment is to focus on the structure and use it to create a good strong composition. We'll see how well it works- more postings later. If you are on Facebook you can check out my facebook page for more pictures.

Honorable Mention from Jean Stern-Irvine Director

This painting won an "Honorable Mention" from Jean Stern the curator of the Irvine Museum in California. It sold and it headed off to a new home in England as a memory of a vacation in California. Just the way I like it to happen.

SOCALPAPA Newport Beach, Calif.

This painting was done while I was in Laguna toward the end of the day when parents were taking down umbrellas, gathering towels and bringing in the kids. This scene has been painted by so many artists for obvious reasons, the rocks, moving surf, changing sky, all elements to make us crazy trying to capture the whole essence of what we are seeing.
