Commission, headed out the door. Turns out 5 commissions at the same time is a little overcommitted, and everything is weeks or months late. I think this one is ready to go out the door though.

Painting in Del Mar

This turned out to be a very fun place to paint. The people on the trains waved as they rolled past, and there were an incredible number of pedestrians.

Outside the Laundromat, San Diego

San Diego Urban Painting

Plein Air Outside The Laundromat While My Clothes Were Drying – for sale through Randy Higbee Gallery. 6 x 6 inches, oil on wood, framed.

I was very excited and honored to hear that this painting is included in the amazing 6″ Squared show at Randy Higbee Gallery. The opening Gala Artists’ Reception is Saturday, December 8th, from 5 to 9 PM. (102 Kalmus, Costa Mesa, CA Get Directions.) I’m looking forward to the opening next weekend, and if you are in Orange County, I hope to see you there!

I always liked the steepness of this street, with its pile of buildings crowned with giant, shaggy date palms and a Victorian commercial building housing a yoga studio. The street is lined with a mix of architectural styles, with Victorian cottages at the bottom, 1920s Spanish Revival buildings that house holistic healing places halfway up, and an awesome 1960s Modern library on the opposite side.

I wound up choosing this vantage point because it was the easiest place to park while doing laundry. Lugging the laundry up the hill was not fun, but it was the perfect place, it turned out, to paint.

Also of note, there’s a great Naples-style pizza place right around the corner.

On to other topics.

I’m also excited to announce a solo show of my urban landscape paintings at the Lyceum Gallery!

Waves on the Rocks, Cabrillo

San Diego Seascape Painting- For Sale

Waves crashing on the rocks on Cabrillo point. I’d planned to touch up this plein air painting in the studio, but after living with the painting for a while, decided to leave it as-is. Something about the less polished state appeals to me.
