Acquired Paintings and Exhibitions

This is the last art exhibit I had in the spring of 2017.  These two ladies standing on either side of me really made it happen.  I had been looking for a space to show a collection of painting that took me three years to put together including matting all of them.

Some of the poppies are just gigantic, deeply red and in the transparent sunlight they shimmer orange and red.

I ran into a friend I hadn’t seen for a long time. We lost contact long ago in San Francisco and lo and behold, there she was visiting the retiro park in Madrid at the same time I was painting. Small world as they repeatedly say.

Open Air Painting

Here you can see part of the Almudena Cathedral.

I was happily painting and almost finished with this small watercolor of the Almudena, when the waiter came by and pulled down the shade umbrella.  You never know what’s going to happen when painting outdoors in the city.

Sala Primo Rivera

My first exhibition when I returned to Madrid in 1994.  I’ve a some more inbetween which I’ll update eventually.
