Sacramento this weekend

I will be showing my new work at the Sacramento Art Fiesta this weekend, June 7 & 8. Located at the Town and Country Shopping Center at Marconi and Fulton, this show has been a fundraiser for the local Kiwanis for about 40 years, I think. My booth will be in " Canopy Row", the only White Tents at the event, located behind the Mexican Restaurant which is across from the Traders Joes.

Thank you Saratoga Rotary

What a great show in Saratoga! The weather was great, and the Rotary was even better. They were very attentive and supportive of our mutual endeavor. Thank you very much. And thanks to all the fair goers for the great feedback on my new work. Now it's time to go paint.

Walnut Creek Sidewalk Art Show This Weekend

The wind last weekend in Menlo Park ( and everywhere else in California I have been told) was very bad. My display almost blew over, and this has never happened in Menlo Park. But it was sunny, so there is something to be said for that. My new work was very well received.

This coming weekend, Walnut Creek. I am located between the Silk Road Restaurant and Crepes A Go-Go - Friday Saturday and Sunday April 25, 26 & 27. 10-5.

Watercolors on Canvas

I have been a professional artist for 19 years, focusing on the landscapes and seascapes of Northern California, with occasional diversions to other local. I started as a transparent watercolorist, and eventually moved into oils and acrylics.

Recently however, I discovered a new canvas that allowed the use of transparent watercolors. This allowed the marriage of watercolors with some of the oil and acrylic techniques I had learned. The look of the canvas is more like an oil, the texture of the surface and the way it wraps around the thick edge of the wooden canvas frame. I show them unframed, called a "gallery wrap", which means they can be hung as is, or framed. Traditional watercolors need a frame and glass to protect them. These new surfaces are coated to protect them from accidental water spills or spots, and the sun of course.

I do not mix media on my watercolor canvas, so they are truly transparent watercolors.
