Architectural gems

"Italianate Jewel, Alameda", Acrylic on Wood, 8" x 6"
"Alameda Gem", Acrylic on Wood, 8" x 8"

"Century Plant, Alameda", Acrylic on Wood, 8" x 6"

This is a new series of small paintings I'm doing on wood panels.  I'm really enjoying the texture of the wood surface and the look of the grain where it glows through in the transparent passages.  The Scene on the Strait is featuring a special new miniatures exhibit this year and I'll be including "Century Plant" and several other small paintings (the other two shown here are already sold.) This wonderful, family-friendly art festival is happening August 9 in Martinez.  For details visit the Scene on the Strait page on Facebook.
