Venice Beach

Well the art show in Santa Monica was a debacle. It actually was in Venice Beach. For those of you who don't know, Venice Beach is a kind of world renown side show. It wasn't an art show it was a street fair. Our booth was across from a DirectTV booth. My friend Loren and I showed up at 6:00 am. It was overcast, no one was there except homeless people starting to get up and rouse about. It seemed like there was thousands of people, but they were their for the show and not to buy art. I sold two boxes of cards though, and I did this painting of the Venice street scene.

Northern California

They say you can never go home. I gave it a go anyways and went to Sonoma County where I grew up. Things are different. But I did do a bit of painting. Here is a sample. This is a quick watercolor sketch of Foppiano Winery, Healdsburg. I did the painting because I am going to be in an art show in Santa Monica the 15 & 16 of August. Stay tuned to my blog and I will give you the details next time...
