Here's the beautiful model Chava posing for our figure group at Randy Sexton's studio last night. It was such a joy to paint her!

Finished my banner today!  As part of the City of Brentwood's Banner Up! project, this will fly from a downtown lamp post during the summer, then be auctioned off to benefit the Brentwood Library in September.  If you're interested in purchasing this banner, e-mail me at and I'll give you information about the auction. (We are Brentwood CA, 94513 in Northern California.)

Quiet Cove, Benicia

"Quiet Cove, Benicia", acrylic on linen 16" x 12", © Nancy Roberts
At this lovely cove nestled into a quiet Benicia neighborhood, a decaying old fishing pier zigzags its way out into deep water and the sundrenched hills of Contra Costa shimmer across the Carquinez Strait. At low tide the old timbers cast an intricate, lacy pattern of reflections.
