Sugar Bowl 2

"Sugar Bowl 2"
6" x 7" oil on panel

I don't know why I love painting shiny objects. 
Perhaps it is the challenge of creating the illusion 
of metal on a two dimensional surface. 

Maybe it's a challenging exercise in "seeing." 
Whatever the reason, I simply adore painting 
metal, glass or images of water!

I picked these apples from a tree in
my neighborhood. I love seeing the
leaves and twigs still attached.

Red Cliff Ranch, "Celebration of the Arts"

Last Summer I was invited by Virginia Martin Whitby
to participate in "Celebration of the Arts"
at the Red Cliff Ranch near Heber City, Utah.

Virginia did an amazing job on this colossal event. 
There were artists, jewelers, musicians, horseback
rides, a gourmet barbecue and much more.

She just posted a video about the event. I thought 
you would like to take a glimpse!

Yep. I am in there too! There's a fleeting glance of 
me sitting in a chair on the left side of the screen. 
I'm practically famous! Ha-ha!

Honoring Utah Artists

The opening reception for Alpine Art's "Honoring Utah Artists" was 

Friday night. The place was packed! Stop in and see the paintings.

Each artist painted a 12" x 12" work surrounded by a black frame.

I love how the director hanged the paintings in a random fashion
rather than hanging them in a traditional grid type manner. It gave 
the exhibit a bright, fresh look.

I had two pieces in the show. My pinecones and this landscape.

This month, If you are near South Temple and 5th East, 
pop in and see the show. The artwork is terrific!
