I just dropped off this watercolor painting and a couple of others at BridgeMakerARTS in Richmond, CA for their holiday exhibition that will be up from December 5 through January 3. They have a great creative space and a community of artists on-site. If you are located in the Bay Area and would like to attend an artist reception, it will be on December 5 from 6-9 pm and they are located at:

My Return

Watercolor Painting, Over North Beach

It has been a couple of weeks since my last update.  In the past two weeks I have traveled to visit family and moved to a new apartment where my studio space is much bigger.  It takes a bit of time to settle in but I’m very excited to have a much bigger space in the same neighborhood.  In the mix of everything, I’ve still managed to do a bit of drawing and painting.  I’ve been experimenting with using washes more loosely and letting go of details outside of a confined space.  Always a work in progress, but I’m feeling good about how things are moving.

Also, the opening reception last Friday at the Collector Art Shop in Berkeley, CA went very well with several paintings selling prior to the reception and a great turnout.  Hopefully, there will be more shows to report on in the future and my current works will be up until June 28th.

Exhibiting in Berkeley, CA

Collector Art Shop June Postcard

Yesterday, I dropped off 10 paintings for an exhibit at the Collector Art Shop in Berkeley, CA.  The group show goes up this weekend and is up until June 28. There is a reception on June 12 from 6 to 8 pm with live music by the Gerald Bryant Trio. The show includes work by Bay Area artists: Carol Aaron, Brian Bailey (me), Claude Convers, Becky Jaffe, Kay Marshall, Karen Mason, David Miller, and Mimi Williams. All are welcome to attend!

It feels really good to be a part of such an awesome Bay Area gallery and to see positive things coming together. Thank you to everyone for your help and support!
