Did Someone Say CHOCOLATE??



Season’s Greetings from my studio in Oakland!

This I know…  You love chocolate.  And, since I love you…

I’m very happy to announce that I am participating in the infamous CHOCOLATE + ART SHOW in San Francisco this week!  Food + drinks + music + ART, plus an endless flow of chocolate fondue!!  What could be better??!

~ New Art Work~


Lately in the studio, I’ve been working on a series of seascapes + landscapes.  Mostly small studies that let me experiment with color + perspective without having to commit to a larger canvas.  Kind of a prequel to the larger pieces to come later.These new works developed over a series of days listening to music that has an air of the seaside.  The Cranberries, The Waterboys and a few other bands always make me feel like I’m at away and at peace near the ocean.

Such a great get-away…

This new landscape is small, but it packs a punch with lots of layers + texture.  I adore clouds.  Especially in pink!

In this piece, I wanted to capture the cool air of the Pacific ocean.  My Pacific pieces tend to be more of the Northern California coast as I’m not a huge fan of the tropics.The cooler weather has always been a preference and I think this part of the west coast reminds me of so many days in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire and the always chilly + perfect Plum Island, Massachusetts in Winter.

You know where you stand with the sea.  And…she’s a good listener.

Last, but certainly not least, is this beauty!  I actually did this piece a few weeks back, then put it aside as I wasn’t sure it was finished.

Funny thing about that.  Sometimes you put a piece aside and you’re not really sure why.  With this one, I found myself staring into it and getting taken away, but it seemed too simple, too plain almost.  What I realize now, is that quiet isn’t necessarily lacking.  So much of my work has a lot of color and movement to it and this one felt like it wanted to stay subtle.  Almost shy in a way.

I applied layers of blue + violet + silver which makes the depth come through in the top of the painting and then the greens + yellows draw you into the play on light.

This piece has an immediate calming effect on me…  And let’s face it,  we could all use a bit of CALM right now… am I right?
