Mystical Musings

'The Oracle'        oil, 11x24 inches


Holy Moly! Summer has been flying by here in LA and I’m getting ready to fall into the fall, hopefully in a graceful kind of way and not in the vein of Charlie Chaplin. It’s been a good summer, hard to imagine it’s almost time to take out the Halloween candy and hockey mask. Soon the harvest Moon will be hanging low and orange on the horizon, the  LA smog will have a subtle shift and smell just a little less like diesel lawn mowers and a little more like diesel leaf blowers. The temperature should drop by a dramatic three degrees or so and the urge to travel will grow larger and larger until it becomes almost unbearable! Speaking of travel, I am utterly delighted to be headed back to the idyllic rolling hills and cliff-side hot springs of Esalen in Big Sur to teach my last plein air workshop of 2013! I am also looking forward to a very fruitful, exciting and awesomely audacious Autumn filled with exciting shows and events!
Here is the skinny on upcoming shows and workshops. Enjoy!

I hope your summer is filled with hummers and your fall will have no walls!  Huh, that sounded kind of like a gypsy curse.  Let me rephrase that......have a great rest of the summer and an awesome autumn!
