It was fun painting with the California Art Club at the Firehouse Arts Center in Pleasanton yesterday! The paint-out was a kick-off for the CAC's "Bay Area Parks: Outdoor Treasures" exhibition at the Harrington Gallery inside the arts center.  My painting "Above Ground: Black Diamond Mines" is part of that show, and my new painting of the arts center is being featured in the lobby.  The exhibit runs through July 20.

Hide and Seek

A bright coral King Protea flower was holding court amidst spikes of yellow-green aloe and dusty turquoise agaves on this early summer day at the Ruth Bancroft Garden in Walnut Creek, CA. I knew what my painting's title would be when I heard a happy child shout "Let's play hide and seek!"
