I am so pleased to be the featured artist for September at Gallerie Renee Marie, Benicia, California. My new work will be in the gallery beginning September 2. My fellow artists and I are hosting an opening reception on Saturday, September 10, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. There will be plenty of good conversation, good food, and even some blues music.
All my new paintings are acrylic, many with collage. I'm a life-long lover of the blues, so I've tried to capture the mood and spirit of the music. In addition, all the paintings focus on a blue palette. Working in acrylic is a new direction for me, and I find I love the strong color I can get with the medium. But I'll always come back to watercolor, my first love!
