Postings of new paintings

I was talking to a friend on Ham Radio today, and realized that I hadn't posted any new work to my website for years. Since she was interested in seeing one of my paintings, and I am not sure when I will be doing my website redesign, I decided to post these paintings here on my blog for now. These 3 paintings were each finished in the last few months. The oils are part of the show I am having at the Coffee Gallery, but the watercolor of the little girl and the cat are at Tirage Fine Art, which is located in Pasadena. All of these images are also available as archival
giclee prints made my me using archival pigmented inks on archival paper or special canvas. These prints are strictly limited in number and will be signed and numbered by me, the artist.

These three paintings are called, "Pet the Kitty" (watercolor), "Red Hot Ladies" (oil), and "In the Heart of LA: Echo Park Lotus with Fountains" (oil). I also have blank notecards with these images on them. At the moment, the only place you can buy the notecareds are by contacting me via email, or by visiting the Coffee Gallery in Altadena, where there is a rack with these cards set up.

Yay, got two paintings in the California Art Club Gold Medal Show

Yep, I just found out that the painting I finished last month, plus another older small painting of the Colorado Street bridge were accepted in the California Art Club Gold Medal show. This show is a pretty big deal, they have a catalog of the paintings, and it is held in April at the Pasadena Museum of California Art. This show has a national audience, not just local stuff.

I also got a bunch of my paintings formatted in Photoshop to be able to make greeting cards (blank inside), and have already sold a bunch, down at the Coffee Gallery in Altadena. This is the only place that has them so far.
