Hey, this is cool. I got a call today from the Chancelor of the Biology School at UC Berkely asking permission to use the painting below on a poster advertising their Microbiology conference at Asilomar Conference Center. I did a series of sand dune paintings last year. Funny enough, not great sellers, although one in particular (that hasn’t sold yet) was accepted to several prestigeous exhibitions.

I gave them my persmission and just asked for a copy of the poster…

Asilomar Dunes – Oil on Canvas – 12×12″

    That’s nice indeed!
    I don’t know if you want to post it, but I would be interested in seeing the poster when it is finished. I am curious how they will do the lay-out..

  2. Wonderful colors in this piece! Congrats on the attention from such a great place as Berkeley :):) (I graduated in 85 – computer science).

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while – it’s fun to read the thoughts of another tech type turned artist.

    Congrats Ed, this type of publicity can be invaluable for an artist. Especially if you are credited somewhere on the poster. Mainly because the attendees of the conference will more than likely be of an art appreciating/collecting demographic.

    I like the painting, its a beautiful simple statement, with a pleasing and unified palette (relaxation–you can almost hear that surf lapping on the shore). I also looked through the others in your series…nice work, now I think I’m inspired to paint the waters and beaches of the great lakes here where I live!

  4. Lisa, so great to see your comment as I hadn’t seen your blog before. I’ll add you to my RSS feeds. I know a lot of software engineers that are muscians (I’m one as well), but less so artists. Having been a software engineer, I know as you do that that is in itself quite an art. I actually miss it. I look forward to reading your blog in the future.
