Watercolor: Warm Sheets (back from San Diego Artwalk)


Warm Sheets 4×5 watercolor (sold)

I’m back from the San Diego Artwalk (see photos below), and it was delightful. Now, this weekend, May 2 & 3, I’ll be at the Sierra Madre Art Fair in booth #5 at Memorial Park behind City Hall (222 West Sierra Madre Blvd). If you live in or near Los Angeles, swing by the Art Fair for some fine art, live music and a late afternoon chorus from the wild, green parrots that occupy the trees in the park. As I mentioned in previous posts, I’ll be moving my studio next week (yikes!), so I’m earnest-as-a-hand-truck about reducing the load before boxing, heaving & transporting all this art to my new studio. ????

Are you interested in photos of the old vs new studio? The two spaces aren’t super different, but I think it’s interesting to see the layout and set up of where artists make their scribbles. Let me know in the comments.


Saturday at the San Diego Artwalk was drizzling on and off, and cloudy, but art lovers walked the show, regardless of the chilly temps!


Patrons lounging in my booth; San Diego is where the beautiful people (and dogs) live. This one has been visiting me for years, so we’re old pals.

Art Quote

John Everett Millais’ (1829-1896) painting of Ophelia was purchased on 10 December 1851 by the art dealer Mr Henry Farrer for 300 guineas (a guinea was 21 shillings, one shilling was worth 12 old pence –  about $1200). Mr Farrer already owned several works by Millais; Christ in the House of His Parents (‘The Carpenter’s Shop’) 1849-50 and Mariana 1851.

Farrer sold it to a keen Pre-Raphaelite collector called Mr BG Windus who then sold it in 1862 to a Mr Graves for 748. Mr Gambart owned it from 1864, followed by a Mr W Fuller Maitland from 1872 and again in 1892. Sir Henry Tate bought it in September 1892, and then presented it to the nation as part of the Sir Henry Tate Gift in 1894.

Save for later & Share!

    I would to love to see your old studio where you created all that wonderful inspirational art. I have been a printmaker for years and yet I find something to try each time I log on to your blog.

    Une très belle aquarelle … qui est je dirais même sensuelle avec ses draps repliés… Une très jolie palettes de couleurs.
    Je suis certaine que vous passez des moments délicieux avec la plupart de vos clients… Une exposition qui me plairait bien de visiter, dommage que vous soyez loin pour moi !
    Je vous souhaite un vif succès.

    ❀ Gros bisous ❀
