On Location Today...Plein Air Faux Pas on Ring Mt.

Friday, January 18, 2008
I took this photo today, on Ring Mt. in Tiburon, CA, just South of the eucalyptus grove. Pictured is artist, Kate Peper, creating a plein air watercolor of Mt. Tam. To the left of Kate is my empty easel... We hiked all the way out there today and got ready to set up and I realized, after double checking my supplies when I left the house, I'd forgotten.... A CANVAS! First, "Plein Air Faux Pas" of 2008.... Say that 10 times fast. Oh well, "Laugh and the whole world laughs with you"... right? So, I spent an hour or so photographing Tiburon and San Francisco from the area just below the Eucalyptus Grove, East of Turtle Rock. It was the wrong time of day to capture Bay Views, as it was too bright. I guess I needed some sort of filter, and I am not a professional photographer, so I take my bad photos home and fix them in Photoshop. Here is one of those from today...and, for future reference, a plein air checklist...

In the Studio Today... San Anselmo Inn show is on!

Thursday, January 17, 2008
My show is officially up and running at the San Anselmo Inn. I want to thank Karlyn Good for her assistance in hanging my show, and Julie and Peter McNair for hosting the show at their lovely establishment in the Tea Room. Julie has offered to serve a cup of tea and a pastry to those who drop in to see the paintings. Please call ahead at 455-5366, if you are dropping in for tea. You may also make a reservation for their Sunday Afternoon Tea, which includes sandwiches, scones, and live music. Finally, we are planning an evening reception, the second weekend in February; Friday, February 8th, 6-8pm. Please save the date if you would like to join me for the artist's reception at the Inn for wine and hors d'oeuvres.
This show was made possible in part by a grant from the Marin Arts Council and the Wendy Gruber Fund for Artists.
