We had our Los Gatos Art Association’s Spring Members Juried Show this afternoon at the Rose Shenson Gallery at the Triton Museum and I brought my signature Trader Joe’s meringues which looked like sea foam on my seascape skirt and matched my paintings, Cypress Crescent and Davenport Blue. These little things make me happy, and just as well as I’m the only one who notices! Great to see the great group of artists in our association. Here are a few photos from the event.

I was really taken with Andy Ballantyne’s painting San Juan Bautista which placed second, I believe. Click on image for his website.
Of course, I love anything Carole Rafferty paints! Her gorgeous Western Addition took third for oils. Click on image for her website.

More Good News!
Davenport Blue and Cypress Crescent were both selected for the Los Gatos Art Associations Spring Member Juried Show by the award winning artist Mike Bailey who was the juror for the show.
The exhibition runs the month of April in the Rose Shenson Gallery at the Triton Museum of Art!
I was running around today dropping off paintings for exhibition at the Los Gatos Museums Gallery and the Pacific Art League of Palo Alto – I was grateful for the break in the rain but you can tell the damage was already done to my do! ( what do?)
More importantly, the paintings were fine and I was happy to see my model for Blue Corset and happier still that she likes the painting, you can never tell what the reaction might be!
If I managed to capture the slightest bit of Shannon’s fabulosity in my painting Blue Corset I’m thrilled. She was a great model!
Dragon Pajama boy will keep Blue Corset girl company at the gallery!
Cypress Crescent went to the Pacific Art League’s new temporary digs for the Member’s Show which will run the month of February. Darn that glare!

One of our family’s New Year’s traditions is to spend the day seaside hiking at Año Nuevo or Point Lobos. So, while we were skiing in the Sierras this year it seems appropriate that my first painting of the year should be a seascape. Cypress Crescent is a view from Cypress Grove at Point Lobos. I love the blue horse shoe of roots clinging to the rock.
It’s good to be back in the studio painting again now that the holidays are over!
Here I am working on another vista from Point Lobos. In this one I’m interested in the crescent shape that is formed in the corner in the upper right, it seems a welcome contrast to all the lines and angles, much like the contrast between the vegetation and the stone. I really enjoy how the swath of blue ocean seems to bleed down the rest of the painting.
I only had a few hours to work on this painting before breaking for yoga and a sand mandala ceremony on compassion but I feel it’s a good start. It was moving to watch Lama Ngawang sweep up his intricate and painstaking art into a pile while speaking on the nature of attachment and how nothing is permanent.
