I am thrilled that my painting "Rose Parade" is included in this group exhibit celebrating cities and towns of Southern California's picturesque San Gabriel Valley. Actually being at the parade on New Year's Day 2011 was a fabulous experience and I hope my painting captures some of the color, energy and excitement of the day. 

ArtNight Pasadena on Friday October 10, 2014 from 6 - 10pm is a great time to see the exhibit. Admission to the museum will be free that night. There will be live music and the Crepe’n Around food truck will be there. Take the opportunity to also visit other Pasadena prominent arts and cultural institutions that are participating in ArtNight Pasadena. Free shuttle buses link all venues, all night long. Park at one site, tour the others via shuttle!

"The Heart of Watts"

I finally made it to the Watt's Towers! The amazing creation of one man, Sam Rodia over the span of 33 years in the community of Watts in Los Angeles. The Towers consist of 17 interconnected sculptural structures embedded with pieces of porcelain, tile, and glass. Truly awesome. "The Heart of Watts" is my impression of one small part of Rodia's masterpiece. I was inspired to paint "The Heart of Watts" to share this unique and wonderful mosaic sculpture... but of all the elements of the towers that I could have chosen for my composition, I picked the heart... and that's about me and where my head is and my heart. I blame it on all the Kundalini yoga heart opening exercises I've been doing.

"Places I've Been" aka Blue Heaven

A few years back I discovered Blue Heaven, off the beaten path in Key West, Florida. We dined outside as chickens wandered underfoot. The food was wonderful, the best meal of the entire trip. Greeting cards of my watercolor painting of the sign are available on
