I am excited to be participating in Open Studios in Benicia tomorrow, Saturday! I am showing with HQ Gallery, on the main drag of Benicia. I will be there Sunday, but showing in the gallery only. I have a lot of tiny works, as well as bigger paintings, and may have some sale items as well.
HQ Gallery will also be celebrating its two-year anniversary on Saturday from 3-5, so drop by to join in the fun!

Inspired by the recent Monet: the Late Years show at the DeYoung, obviously!
Normally when I go out plein air painting, I do more traditional style painting. This time, the tree shapes were so distinct, and my view of them was so narrow (vertically), the ocean color intense, a few stripes of brilliant sun, that I sort of fell into this more graphic representation. The headlands became pure shapes in the second one, at top.
See these and more at Open Studios in Benicia!
Even though it’s quite simple, I like it.
Benicia Artists Open Studios will take place on Saturday & Sunday, May 5 & 6.
Saturday, 11 am to 7 p.m.
