"Desert Tapestry", acrylic on canvas 16" x 12", © Nancy Roberts
I'm honored that my painting "Desert Tapestry" has been accepted into the California Art Club's "Art Between the Lines" exhibition coming up at the Peninsula Museum of Art in Burlingame, CA. Exhibit dates are April 29 - July 8 with an artists' reception on Sunday, April 29, 2 - 4 pm. Learn more at

I love working from life, but reality is just a jumping-off point for me. The essence of the scene inspires my initial drawing, and then I take the design in exciting new directions with energized color, dancing shapes and rhythmic patterns. Unfolding with a life of its own, each new painting is a joyful exploration!
