Welcome everyone to my blog!
I just turned in two new paintings I did for the California Art Club Gallery at The Old Mill exhibition of “Plein Air Paintings of the Tejon Ranch.” The collection represents a dozen artists and looks spectacular! I would highly recommend seeing it. The opening reception is Thursday, January 6 (5:30-7:30 PM) at The Old Mill, 1120 Old Mill Road, San Marino.
Driving home this afternoon from visiting sculptor Peter Brooke at his studio located in Jim Henson's Creature Shop I was fascinated by the variety of characters he created for various films, such as The Wild Things, and was particularly inspired by the articulated sculptures I saw of fantastic creatures. I thought how lucky we are to live in southern California amidst so much talent and creativity - and GREAT artistic inspiration.
