In the Studio Today...MALT & October Landscapes

Tuesday, October 30, 2007
What a busy month! I thought the kids going to kindergarten would provide more painting time, but as it turns out, this is a time for parents to become involved and volunteer in all kinds of school events. One of the most spectacular field trips I have ever attended was in Petaluma, at the Spring Hill Dairy Farm and Peter Pumpkin Patch. Perfect day for painting, but I took lots of photos for future reference.

My latest business efforts this month have included a very small show at the last Sausalito Art Walk of the season, followed by application to MALT's Ranches and Rolling hills art show for 2008. I learned today that my plein air painting from Fairfax Fresh Farm sold at the event to the owner of Sol Food in San Rafael. What an honor! The GREEN restaurant has purchased one of my organic farm paintings at a GREEN event. Truly verdant business all around.

In the Studio Today...Mt. Tam; Session #3

"Mt. Tam, from Corte Madera Creek" 16" x 20"
This started as a plein air painting yesterday, Friday. It has been reworked in two more studio sessions. I enjoyed this composition with the rocks in the foreground, as the two rocks echo the shape of the two mountains; Mt. Tam and King Mountain in Larkspur.
