I hope everyone is having a great weekend! 🙂

Thanks to Diane Bell – a wonderful artist and person – I had the opportunity to print some of my old favorite etchings. She has a beautiful, spacious printmaking studio and a good-sized etching press. I spend about 5.5 hours in her studio today, printing and talking to her about printmaking techniques. She had some great tips and suggestions to share and I can’t wait to go back and print more.

So the popular “Monks” is now available in my shop once again and I will list the “Grand Oak” soon.

We also had an opening at the gallery for the Sea, Sand and Sun and Urban Art exhibits. After printing with Diane, I went down to say hello. It was a nice opening and my little painting sold already -so that is exciting. I know who purchased it – so thank you Bruce and Barbara! 🙂


I just framed one of my 50 miniature paintings titled “Sand Castle”. The Blue Line Gallery in Roseville is having a summer themed exhibit called “Sea, Sand and Sun” starting this Saturday. My painting will be part of the exhibit.

Please excuse the poor photo (lighting conditions were terrible). Anyway – you get the idea – white frame with the image floating on top of the mat. I think it goes really well with the image.
