Open Studios is wrapped up and was a great experience.  Lots of interesting, interested people, laughter, good connections made and an all around success.  Look forward to next year.  In the meantime moving forward with networking, although I am too late to enter the fair, again.  Today is the final day and I'm not ready!  Too much going on the last few weeks to pull it together.  Ah well.  I do believe I will join Marin Art Society, have already started the process, and show in their gallery.  Tuesday was the last critique group day until the fall.  I hadn't been for awhile and was so glad I went.  Always informative, helpful and fun.  A great group of people.  Feeling fortunate.  Next Monday is the meet and greet for the Tim Horn workshop that I am assisting with.  Tuesday we meet at China Camp and that starts four days of plein air in beautiful Marin.  We'll start with  China Camp,  then two days at an incredible ranch past Nicasio, and then the town of Nicasio itself.  Great places to paint with a favorite instructor and painter.  If you are unfamiliar with Tim's work I suggest you visit his web

I really enjoyed painting this little bird, and was very happy with the results.  Especially the eye.    All of my paintings are either plein air, arranged still life, or from photographs that I have taken.  I am particularly drawn to birds and walk in several bird sanctuaries frequently.  Lucky to have such diversity in Marin.  Can you tell I love where I live?  


  1. Love the bird! It's shape and color is perfect. Your paintings are truly lovely! I so enjoyed seeing them at the critique group. Sorry that you are not doing the fair. Have fun painting next week!

  2. Thanks Kaethe!! I will miss the critique group, but hope that we have a few paint outs in between now and start up time in the fall. I'm really sorry I am missing the fair too!! Next year! It was a challenging workshop with the bad weather but a game group! Lots of fun and new contacts. Hope all is well with you.
