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!

Garden Baroque

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!
