My show at Viewpoints Gallery is winding down. I’ve received lots of great feedback from attending artists, thank you! Most who attended commented that the paintings where at new level, and I really appreciate that. I worked hard on this show, and am proud of what went into it. Although I’ll be moving from the front wall on Jan 29, I’ll leave the paintings on another wall (near the desk) until at least the first week of February.
The next big event will be Open Studios (May 20/21), although I’ll continue to show at Viewpoints Gallery continuously.
I’m sad to report that the very first gallery to show my work, and the one that has sold the most over the years, is closing. Eriksen Gallery in Half Moon Bay was in business more than 30 years. Teresa Eriksen-Brown, togehter with her husband Gene and gallery staffer Daryll Quan, have been running the gallery since the death of Peggy Eriksen, the gallery founder.
Gene and Teresa really tried to find an owner that would continue to format of showing local, emerging Bay Area artists. Unfortunately, that was not to be. I hope you’ll join me in celebrating what was a great gallery, and wishing Darryl, Gene and Teresa the best moving forward.
I was honoored to participate in the Point Reyes Plein Air 2005 Event. This painting was done of the Marin Headlands from Limantour Beach and expresses the quite and vastness of this beautiful open space.

Here’s a painting I did for this event:
