Ready To Go!

Pin It

"Hawaii", Oil, 8" x 16"
$800 framed.

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!

Hi Leslie.
Wonderful painting as usual. I don`t know how you manage to complete all your palette knife paintings with the knife. I have`to complete with a brush. Well done and all the best.

LOVE this one!! It's my favorite of yours yet!(and it's really transporting me out of this rainy, New England day! sigh).

Your art concept of mixing locations and headlines is ingenious. Hope the book is selling well. Hawaii is one of the places I hope to travel some day. Also wanted to let you know I tried to share the blogtalkradio a number of times on my blog and it just wouldn't let me. Tried for over a half hour various ways... I will enlist my 17 year old son and see if he can figure it out. Wonder if others are having problems "sharing" it?
