Art Filled Fall

Getting ready for this falls Open Studios. It’s a little nutty since I decided to do two weekends one at Fort Mason’s Herbst Pavilion and one at my studio. I’m also showing my works on paper in an alternative space this month Triptych SF on 1155 Folsom St. Installation day is about two weeks away. I’ll post more about the artist reception at a later date. Well, I better start and finish framing soon.

Comfort in Tea, 48″x36″ , Oil Painting in Progress

All of my paintings have a special place in my heart. However, every once in a while there is a painting that brings a bit of nostalgia with it. This 48″x36″, oil painting in progress is one of them. Lately, I have been thinking a lot about my late grandmother. I have a fond memories of visiting her house and sitting with her in her kitchen drinking tea. Reflecting back on those memories brings me a sense of comfort.

I tried to capture that same peaceful comfort in this painting.
