These two paintings were accepted into the 2012 Contemporary Masters Artistic Eden III show which opened this month. The show is held at the Pasadena Museum of History and celebrates life in the San Gabriel valley. I went down for the opening and was hugely impressed with the size and quality of the show. The show is running through July so if you are in the area get in to see it. Click here to see some of the art on display.

This still life is the very first time I have used this great vintage tablecloth in a set up. I wanted to emphasize the San Gabriel Valley area so I will have to do another to get the rest in. I am submitting this piece into a regional themed show and finished it up just under the deadline. Sadly the cinnamon raisin roll was far too stale for consumption by the time its services as a model were over. This piece is acrylic on canvas and measures 20″x16″. SOLD. This image is available as a print on Imagekind

These classic desert rose dishes never go out of style. They are as perfect for a rich cup of coffee now as they were back in the 40’s. This watercolor is 5 1/2″x 4″. SOLD

Yesterday I was looking around in the attic and found these great cups wrapped up in old musty newspaper. It has clearly been decades since they have seen the light of day but now they have a new lease on life as still life models.

This piece is 7″x5″ watercolor on paper. SOLD
