This scene is from a street in the City of Tustin, CA near my house. I love finding subjects like this that are normal everyday things and turning them into paintings.


My favorite show of the holiday season is here - the 6" Squared show at the Randy Higbee Gallery in Costa Mesa, CA. This show attracts some of the best painters from across the country and because each painting is required to be 6" x 6" many are very affordable. The quality and number of paintings in this show is staggering, there really is something for everyone.

Every year I look forward to participating in the show and am always pleased when a painting of mine gets juried in. Last year I was awarded an honorable mention which was thrilling because there were a LOT of truly amazing paintings! This year I have 3 paintings in the show and they are available for sale before the opening reception, simply click the links below or call the gallery at (800) 506-7624.

 These were painted from still life set ups in my studio. I've been working on more still life paintings lately. It's fun being able to control the lighting and take my time with them plus, it give me an excuse to buy small pretty shiny objects and claim them as business expenses.

If you are not in the area or can't make it to the reception (which is a shame because Randy and his staff really know how to throw a party) then you can CLICK HERE to see all 600+ paintings online. Honestly though, the opening reception should not be missed. When viewing so many truly amazing paintings and chatting with the artists I guarantee you will need a glass of wine and a few snacks which Randy is always thoughtful enough to provide.
