The Summer Palace

The Summer Palace (4x6'')

This is a new painting, inspired by Persian miniatures and the beautiful mosaics from the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus, Syria.  I called it "The Summer Palace" because of all of the flowering bushes and full, green trees.  It seems like a lovely place to live during the summertime.

Stormy Weather Arts Festival

I am happy to announce that two of my paintings were accepted into the Cannon Beach Gallery's annual juried Miniature Show!  The Miniature Show is part of the the Stormy Weather Arts Festival in Cannon Beach, Oregon.  The Miniature Show will run until 1 December 2012.  The weather was quite stormy.  CJ and I got soaked as we walked from gallery to gallery admiring all of the awesome work, despite the fact that we had an umbrella!  Even with the weather being as stormy as it was, we had a great time.
