Complementary Colors
June 9 - August 5
Mid-Show Reception Friday, July 14,  7 - 9 pm
Frank Bette Center for the Arts, Alameda CA

I'm honored that my painting "Vaqueros Spirit" has been chosen as the signature image for this colorful exhibit in Alameda. I'll also have two other paintings in the show. For information visit http://www.frankbettecenter.org/main-gallery.html

 
I like giving reality a little tweak -- improvising with color, streamlining shapes and weaving playful patterns. Unfolding with a life of its own, each new painting is a journey and a joy!

Here's a playful plantscape I started in the Ruth Bancroft Garden and finished in my studio while listening to some glorious Baroque music. The flowering stalks are Puyas and the rest is pure fantasy!

Curry Point Vista

Painted last week at Curry Point, a switchback in the winding road that climbs Mt. Diablo in Northern California. The views from this location are spectacular in all directions. I decided to look up toward the summit, enjoying the gentle zig-zag of a cool, cascading valley.
