In the Studio Today...OPEN STUDIO; May 2 & 3rd

"Lemons Before Mt. Tam" Plein air at Fairfax Fresh, Meyer Lemon Farm, 2008.

Hello Friends and Art Enthusiasts!

There are 4 artists in my neighborhood that will be opening their doors to the public on May 2nd and 3rd. 3 of these artists are right on San Anselmo Avenue, so look for their signs and balloons. They are on the map found in the recent issue of "Marin Magazine". I am located just off San Anselmo Ave, at 92 Elm, but I am not on the map this year.

Please click here for a map:92 Elm Ave., San Anselmo, CA (Just off of Scenic Ave., or San Anselmo Ave. White house with a red door, and large palm tree in front.)

I have many oil paintings of local, Marin County landscapes, and I am trying to clear them out, as I am creating 20 cycling related scenes for a September show at the Mill Valley Depot. So, what this means is that ALL prices are negotiable at this time, and I have let a few things go for as low as $150. So, if you need a painting for a graduation gift or Mother's Day.... Please take a look a this link below and consider stopping by. I will put a few balloons out in the yard. The paintings are all hanging in my home, and you may click here to preview what I still have available online here. (or paste this url in your browser

Thanks for your support!

In the Studio Today... I Spy Art Mirrors & Poster

Monday, April 6, 2009
(Click above image to enlarge)
The above is a poster of 18, 10" x 10" individual "I Spy" mirrors my son and his classmates created to raise money for the YES Foundation. "YES" funds Art and Music at their public school. I photographed the kids mirrors and combined them to create this poster, and put all the questions the kids came up with in the center of the poster. We are framing this and auctioning it off at the YES Gala this year. Wouldn't this be great in a pediatrician's office, or waiting room? Kid's playroom? Please let me know if you are interested in purchasing a poster. Also, check out and feel free to bid on the great items for auction online to support the boys' art and music programs in the Ross Valley School District.
