I remember walking around the Art Gallery at the OC Fair a few years ago feeling intimidated and frustrated because it felt so out of my reach: the quality of art at the show is exemplary!
Today I'm happy as can be: I entered three paintings and ALL THREE were accepted! I'm just so excited, and hope lots of you visit the Gallery this summer! All three are for sale, so contact me if you are interested!
I'm feeling nostalgic for all the places I've travelled to and all the places I've lived in my life. Portraits on maps have always appealed as they add an abstract element that is both personal and private. Here's a study I call 'London Lad', a canvas mixed media collage. What I learned was the drawing needs to be as accurate as possible - you get one chance or you mess up the map! This is London of course -my Big City first Love 💗
