Sunny Path

This is a plein air from another trip into the underbelly of Balboa Park, meaning an area of the park not visited by tourists.  Locals know areas like this for biking, walking and running.  And the occasional artist like myself likes to get lost in these windy trails as they provide endless painting possibilities.  This is a 6x8 painted in oil on linen panel.

It looks like I'll be heading to Colorado this summer for the Telluride Plein Air Festival held June 29 - July 5, 2014. I haven't done a plein air event in a while so I'm pretty fired up about this one. Again, I'm honored to be juried into this popular event. Telluride is a beautiful little town in the mountains, an oasis for the outdoor painter. Last time I was there it was all work and no play and I wished I had my plein air gear with me. This will be a great time! Since I'm from Colorado I'll probably make it up north to see friends and family. Something to look forward to!

Also as of December I joined an online gallery called UGallery . They have been around since 2006 and represent around 500 artists. You have to get juried in to be a part of this gallery. I decided to try this to try my hand at online sales. They are based in San Francisco and have an office in New York. They are rapidly growing and sell art in over 35 countries. And they promote the artist, which of course is beneficial to me. Some of my more refined paintings will be at this gallery. You can check out my gallery here. You can also search other artists, genres, colors, styles, etc.  A lot of cool stuff there!

For my smaller paintings I opened a Daily Paintworks page where these pieces can be purchased for a decent price. It's a auction type art site where people can buy just about any style of art. I like how this site offers both an auction or "buy it now" option. Again, this is new and interesting to me so I'm going to try it and see how it goes. You can click here to visit the site or click the "Daily Paintworks" Gallery box on the right side of the page. Available paintings are also priced on my blog and website.
