Tiny Garden

This cute little painting will be part of a special collection of "minis" available for the holiday season at Valley Art Gallery in Walnut Creek.  Showcasing a colorful wall full of 4" x 4" paintings created and donated by the gallery's artists, the exhibit is a fundraiser to help purchase art supplies for local schools. The minimum donation to buy a mini is $20, but higher donations are encouraged to support this charitable cause.  You may have to arm-wrestle another collector to score minis by your favorite artists!

The mini exhibit kicks off with a Holiday Open House on Saturday, November 17, 11 am to 5 pm as part of Valley Art Gallery's 53rd Annual Holiday Collection for Artful Giving. Learn more at Valley Art Gallery

More Happy Kids!

Finished my utility box mural!  It's at the corner of Central Blvd. and Griffith Lane in Brentwood, California.  I received lots of nice comments from residents driving, walking and cycling by as I worked.  One friendly guy called out from his car "That's me! The blue one!"

Many thanks to the Brentwood Arts Commission and the City of Brentwood for organizing the awesome Utility Box Mural program.  Fun project!
