Yellow House and The Gold Medal Show
Oil 8x10 on linen
Just a little painting of a Yellow house in Pomona.( Not in the CAC show) Pretty close to the Foundry if I remember correctly. It sold it the second I brought it into the gallery. Sometimes when when that happens you wish you kept the painting.

Portuguese Bend oil 9x12 on linen panel
A few weeks back I was lucky enough to be invited by Boomer Beach to paint at Portuguese Bend with the local artists and some out of Towner's like Viking 57. I'd like to name drop, as more that one of my hero's was there, but don't known the edict of the situation. It was a perfect day I heard one painter who lived there mention in all the years there he had never seen a nicer one.
Me being the rebel in my own mind didn't paint the rolling hills, but found a little gully with some rundown trucks and a metal storage container. I'm on the fence on this one...
I was feeling like I need a challenge so I picked a tough view and I don't think I simplified it enough and in fact, overworked the paint trying to get the trees right. Still, it was a lovely day screaming Peacocks and all. Later at dinner all the artists were all warm and accommodating to me, a stranger to most of them.
