All of the paintings for my show are framed and ready for delivery tomorrow. Yippee. I am really excited about the show and I have to admit, the unique idea and the extra work that came with it was absolutely worth it. I have learned so much about the history of South Pasadena as I spent days looking at past issues of the newspaper. I have found that the paintings I painted of the places that are dear to me ... turned out the best! No big surprise there. Oh ... and good news. I already sold one of the paintings. I had a private showing in my dining room tonight!
I will post the paintings on Wednesday when the show opens. If you are in South Pasadena, please stop by! I will be at the SoPas Gallery this Saturday from 6:00 - 9:00 pm and at the gallery the following Saturday (May 8th) for the Artist Reception.
I am heading to Hawaii next Sunday for a few days with my favorite client. I am actually going over two days early for a little R&R and plein air painting before we begin our site inspection for a big incentive trip in October. I love the Big Island so it should be so much fun! So ... posting this Hawaii painting made sense today!
