Think Large…Paint Small

Sorry, I have to do a little more crowing. My painting was included on the poster! (click here to enlarge the image).

The opening is Friday, July 6, 5:30-8 p.m. in the Norton Gallery  (That’s the small but beautiful upstairs gallery) at the Pacific Art League in Palo Alto. It would be great to see you there; you’ll know me because I’m the one who will be beaming with smiles.

Into a show!

I’m super excited to tell you that this painting of a little Irish dancer has been accepted to the Santa Clara Valley Watercolor Society’s show, “Think Large…Paint Small.”

It’s one of my favorite paintings I’ve made this year. I saw this little girl dance last spring at an exhibition show for children at the Bay Area Discovery Museum; she was the only one in her beginner class, and she danced alone. I thought her quite a brave little girl to dance solo for an audience of her peers.
