New Art - Sutro Flowers

While the rain pours down outside, I wanted to share my latest piece; full of Sunflowers, Poppies and Tulips. Sutro Flowers is my take on one of San Francisco's lesser celebrated icons. Standing 977 ft. tall, Sutro Tower is a three pronged TV and radio antenna tower rising from a hill between Twin Peaks and Mount Sutro. 

Of course while my work could be considered representational I do tend to take liberties. :) And the exchange of tower and flower was too tempting to pass up. You may recognize some of the flowers from my earlier pieces; Here Comes the SunEden Before Apple and Poppy Love.

ArtSpan Art Auction - SOLD!

This year's ArtSpan juried benefit art auction was a huge success, both for the organization and for many of my fellow artists.  It was wonderful to see so many people in attendance and to see how active the bidding was for the donated and juried artwork. An amazing evening, and happy to share that my piece, "If the Shoe Fits" also found a new home.

S.O.S. Save Our Smartcars

With the recent rash of Smart Car tipping, I was reminded of my piece - Parking Space... I've refreshed the composition here in a show of artistic support for those poor little defenseless cars being tipped over by vandals in the wee hours of the night! :)  View now in my online store.

Stay safe, little cars...

Till next time,
