Those are my latest works. The Rialto one, is the one I reworked from 2008. It was a plein air study for the California Art Club paint out. It was at the show on a sunday a couple weeks ago, again at the South Pasadena Library. It was an event discussing the futeure of the century old Rialto Theatre. And the other one is my still life #7 - Apples and Blossoms - from Dan Edmondson workshop - which I had decided would be a study for a larger painting( still is), but so far is the painting that caused most impact from my facebook friends. More excitement: tomorrow going back to NOLA for a long weekend and on the following weekend I have three paintings selected for the show at the Art & Expo @ the Pasadena Convention Center. I hope to sell all of them, for my vacation fund raising. BTW I was going to start my post with" finally the weather has cooled down in L.A., but actually, we did not have too many way hot summer days for the last few years...

Still Life # 6 - Yellow Gerberas - Took a while but now its finished . 16x20 oil on board. All of the sudden I got really busy with my art. Last week I was invited to put 2 paintings on a last minute event in South Pasadena. I quickly reworked studies I had done in 2008. I found myself using much more color that I used to . I see those are influences from this fantastic workshop by Dan Edmondson. I also submitted 3 paintings for a juried art show at the end of Oct, at the Art expo in Pasadena. Soon Still life #7 .
