You can host a COLOR EVENT in your very own home or backyard with my original paintings.  Like this painting of "An Old Barn," you can enjoy more of my work with your friends.  Contact me at 818 368 6043 or  I will bring my paintings to sell, and share some ideas for refreshing your home with exciting color harmony swatches to take home and  make one of your rooms "pop" with the energy of color.  As a host you can also enjoy a 20% commission on the sales or a comparable original painting of mine.

You can view my work at galleries in Pasadena, Blinn House; Ventura, Imagine on Main Street;
Moorpark, High Studio Art Gallery, Mammoth Lakes, Sierra Design Studio, or make an appointment to come to my CREEK SIDE STUDIO GALLERY.

Creek Side Studio Gallery Show

Come join me at my Limekiln Creek Side Studio Gallery on Oct. 20 and  21 to view a large selection of my recent paintings.  You can request more information if you want to contact me at   My work includes Limekiln Creek and California landscapes, some from my world travels, florals, and abstracts.  Because I paint with a palette knife the colors are sculpted and radiate light in different ways as the day goes by.  Unlike a photo or brush painting, they are not flat.  People say that I take them to places they would like to visit in the intense colors that I pull out with passion.  You can also see my work at Blinn House in Pasadena, Jose Vera Gallery with the California Art Club in Los Angeles, Artists' Enclave in Woodland Hills, Imagine on Main Street in Ventura, Sierra Design Studio in Mammoth Lakes, and High Studio Art Gallery in Moorpark.  Be sure and scroll through other postings included in the archives here, for more fun with my work.
