Holiday Happenings!

 Here is a new painting currently showing at the Howard/Mandville Gallery 'Holiday Showcase'
Exhibition runs through December 31st.

'Hallows Eve Revelry'..........oil on canvas panel...........12x16 inches

Seasons Greetings!

The New Year is almost upon us and although it seems the Mayan apocalyptic predictions were a tad bit exaggerated, I still think they might have foreseen all this wacky weather we’ve been having.  
Just got back from the Caribbean and it was beautiful, just the most perfect weather ever, a good twenty degrees warmer than Los Angeles and who knows how much warmer than parts further North.  Ben and I snorkeled in crystal blue waters on white sand beaches, took in some Reggae music (and rum)  at the local bars, and mostly relaxed and recharged from a busy 2012.  Now it’s back to work and I’m gradually settling into my studio once again to create some exciting new works for 2013 and getting ready for my Ojai plein air workshop in April (looking forward to painting those rolling hills in the beautiful Ojai countryside!)
Currently I am participating in a few Holiday group shows that will be closing by the end of December.
If you still have some last minute (or post Christmas) shopping to do, now’s your chance to snag that miniature piece for your loved one!

The porch scene is wonderful. Exactly what art should be; moving, engaging, beautifully executed.

Vincent van Gogh was the famous Dutch artist who painted the Starry Night. While Van Gogh might have only sold a single painting, his thoughts and brilliance are accredited through this one painting only. In addition to being one of the most famous paintings of all times, Starry Night is reputed for being one of the popular images in the contemporary art culture.
Starry Night depicts a small village in the city of Saint-Remy beneath a swirling sky. Unknown to most people, the village is being viewed at an angle from an asylum. please visit
