Maui Palms and Fun News

Maui Palms
Oil  6" x 8"

This painting is headed off to Austin.  I painted one like it last winter when we were in Maui.  But, just after I set up to paint, it started raining and the painting became darker and reflected the rain colors of the moment.  At the request of the client I've painted this lighter, sunny day view.  After finishing this and going back through my photos of that trip, I hope one day we'll go back to Hawaii!

Fun News:  Tomorrow I will be the co-host on Artists Helping Artists, Blog Talk Radio.  Leslie Saeta and I will be interviewing Melinda Cootsona about her book:  "Open Your Studio-9 Steps to a Successful Art Career".  I've wondered about having an open studio, but was never quite ready to jump right in.  So, I loved reading this book.  Hope you can listen in!  The show is broadcast live at 9:00 am PST or you can listen to the podcast any time.

Pam, Congrats on this great painting, and being on the blog radio! Looking forward to hearing this! Will stay tuned!
By the way, just went to an opening of a mall grp exhibit, including Melinda's work , at Epperson Gallery. She was showing her work with Sandy Ostrau! She is a local artist, right here in the bay area, as is Sandy! Feel lucky to have such talent, so close to home!
