Westside Road Oak

This is one of the pieces at Mom's Pharmacy in the Castro. Visual Aid curates six month shows at Mom's and my work will be there until the end of the year. This is my second solo show in the Castro, the first one was in the lobby of Bank of America. One of these days, I'll have a solo show in a gallery. In the mean time, I like having my work fill the plush golden walls of Mom's.

Cherry Blossom Bird 7" x 7"

I'm working on creating larger canvases for Open Studios in October. Last week I prepped four new braced boards, one 16 x 20, two 12 x 12 and one 11 x 14. Up until now, the majority of this new work is on small 7 x 7 pieces of poplar. I'm excited to move into the new presentation - now I'll just have to see if I can hold out for Open Studios.

Neighborhood Mascot

I am frequently caught off guard without my camera when this guy (or gal) is landing on some roof top or telephone pole in Bernal Heights. On Friday, she, or one who looks very similar, landed on a the corner of a roof on Anderson Street. It would have been a perfect shot for a transfer; a brilliant blue sky and a clear, close shot with no obstructions. I try not to lament when this happens, but to take the opportunity to watch the bird, happy that this series has given me a chance to direct my sights upward.
