In April, I will be at West Portal in south San Francisco the 3rd, then Menlo Park the 17th, 18, and 19 and on May 3rd I will be in Saratoga. Also, Carmel art festival will be 14th thru the 17th of May with 70 of the best painters in the state. That is always a hoot. I went painting out with my friend Frank Ordaz who did a wonderful job of No hands bridge. I am also doing a large figurative painting from a scene in Italy at Cinque Terra with a priest and crucifix. Rather somber piece but I liked the red robe of the priest so had to paint it. The painting on the right is of Tuscany where the poppies grow everywhere. This is about 30 miles north of Sienna in the countryside. Very beautiful and scenes to paint abundant.
