Southwest Art Magazine, Aug. 2013 Southwest Art Magazine, Aug. 2013

The August issue of Southwest Art Magazine is on the newstands. On pages 16 & 17 there is an ad for the upcoming Frank Bette Plein Air Paint Out which features 40 artists who are invited to paint outdoors in Alameda, CA. My pastel painting, “On Golden Hill” is included along with my website. I am excited to be in this beautiful art journal that has a national audience.

The Paint Out is next week beginning on July 29th when we get our substrates (paper, board, or canvas) stamped and paint on location on the island of Alameda in preparation for the Exhibit and Sale on Sat., Aug. 3 from 10 to 5 at the South Shore Shopping Center at Otis and Park Street. It is a challenge to produce 3 paintings worthy of exhibition by Saturday. We will be hitting the tree-lined streets, historic Victorian architecture, lagoons, Estuary, and beaches with views of the San Francisco Bay in search of the perfect scene that inspires and may capture the heart of a collector.

And on the subject of collectors… My painting, “On Golden Hill” of the Eckersly barn outside of Crockett, CA painted during the Valona Paint Out has been sold to a painting friend and collector in Livermore. As much as I get attached to painting, it is always rewarding to have others support my work.
