Supporting the Burlingame Library and the Arts


It is always a pleasure to support local libraries.

I was invited to participate in a group art exhibit at the Burlingame Main Library for the month of July. The show features the works of the Peninsula Museum of Arts' studio artists. I raised my daughter with the books from this library, and am pleased to participate.

The curator has requested that artists bring extra works to show, and perhaps sell, on the reception evening, First Friday Event, July 7, 5-8 pm. She likes my little black and white graphics work, so I made three for the occasion. Perhaps I will make more during the next week. If I sell these or the painting on the wall, half of the proceeds will be donated to the Burlingame Library.

Open Studios May 6 & 7


I've made about 25 tiny paintings in the past 3 months. Here are two examples that show that some are very simple and some very intricate. The top piece is an homage to the plight of Africans who were taken out of their homeland in slavery and have yet to find a sense of overall societal equality and respect. The second piece was sourced from an angry moment.

"Shaman Dance"
Gouache
6"x5"

Photographing the subtlety of gouache is basically impossible, but here is the gist of one of my new images. My imagery has to do with humans as conscious/unconscious beings. Time and place are abstracted into unlimited spacial concepts.

I have been creating a number
of small paintings. At this point
in time I am not publishing them publicly.
Ah, the mysteries of the world...
