Bolinas Museum Exhibition Aug 19 - September 19, 2009
The Bolinas Museum is a small but highly active regional museum located in west Marin in the coastal town of Bolinas. The community of Bolinas has a long history of dedication to the arts and artists. Writers, painters, poets and movie makers call or have called Bolinas home and the museum has functioned as a fulcrum and meeting place for those with diverse talents and interests.
This year, as in years past I will have two paintings in the Bolinas Museum Annual Auction.
"The Constant Motion" is a 16x20 landscape and "Biglin Brother in the Rills" addresses my interest in art history by placing one of Thomas Eakins familiar scullers in one of my landscapes. Both paintings will part of auction to be held on the 19th of September. The auction is open to the public and has great food and live music.

The artwork will be auctioned on Saturday, September 19, 2009 in Bolinas at Susie and Mark Buell's Barn. For more information contact the Bolinas Museum (415) 868 -0330

West Marin Wild

The above paintings were part of a Labor day weekend exhibit entitled "West Marin Wild".
This exhibit was organized a few years ago by friend Anne Baxter and is put together every other year around Labor Day. The exhibition includes about 35 local artists whose work collectively represents concerns about our environment, specifically west Marin county.
The opening and exhibit takes place at the Red Barn near Bear Valley in Pt. Reyes and is wonderful opportunity for community to gather eat some good food, listen to some good music,view and purchase some beautiful artwork.
The paintings "Thoreau on White Owl" is part of a series of portraits I have been painting. The paintings reflect my concerns for the environment, but also try to address that part of our American character that found its voice in the work of Thoreau, Emerson and many of the nature poets. I will be posting these portraits as an ongoing series.
