Wednesday, April 29, 2009 is now open!!!

Ok - so think it's appropriate to say: "If you can't join them, beat them". That being said I am the proud owner and founder of the alternative to the big box type of online store for buying quality fine art. I guess you could say I'm a virtual art boutique. I don't buy everything because...well...why? I feature the best. Please visit...stay awhile and from now till May 21st receive 20% off your order by using the coupon code Open20. And free shipping for all orders over $250.00....all the time.
Oh the little red guy on the right? That's by Andy Warhol...I like cats.

Wine Country Visit...

Last Saturday we drove on up to Healdsburg - one of my favorite places ever! We stopped at Hammerfriar Gallery right there on Healdsburg Ave to see an opening of a group show. The owner, Jill Plamann pulls together an electric array of artists with a range of talent not usually seen all in one place; from balanced and calm collages by Deborah Salomon to tranformative figures from Ryan Douglas. The hanging puppets by Gene McClelland were mildy creepy in a good kind of way and the darkly poetic photography of Michael Garlington was moving, emotional and quietly thought provoking. Their current group show runs through May 6th.

And if you have time stop over at Zin for a glass of Sonoma Valley wine and intriguing conversation. But that's for another day.

Here's a new print that will take those blues away. Blue Note now offered on Etsy - it's 12x36" of texture heaven. Once again - I scanned in small paintings - this time lots of drops and splats and just layered and layered and changed opacity till it was just right. Enjoy...and have a sunny day.
