A Little Exposure..........

The April issue of Southwest Art magazine is featuring an article about James Lightner's book Land Of Sunlight - Contemporary Paintings Of San Diego County. This book was released last summer. Luckily, I was one of ten artists chosen to have a painting printed for this article. The painting chosen was Alcazar Gardens. I'm thrilled for my small contribution for this article. I hope you get a chance to check it out.

Oil/linen panel
Life study

It's been a while since I have posted a portrait because it's been a while since I have painted one. This was a joy to paint and it felt good to see my friends at the Tuesday portrait group. Life and work have a way of interrupting these pleasures! But we all know this difficulty.

'60 Chevrolet Conversion

Studio painting

Thought I would have some fun with this one! This car is a 1960 Chevrolet Wagon which was converted into a ambulance. The lights were a later addition and the inside was revamped for emergency use. The original ambulances from this time were higher in the back to accommodate equipment and people. This painting will also be at a gallery I'll be showing at starting next week and I'll post those details soon. It was painted from picture reference taken in Denver when I was home for Thanksgiving. It was asking to be painted!
