We had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of a new gallery. The Theshold Art Gallery is located in Redlands, California. It is always so inspiring when someone makes their dream come true. We met some amazing artist Lynn Richards, Cindy Rinne and Aeron Brown.
It was an amazing night.
Still working on the Fruit Series, so here we are with “Spatter of
Grapes”. This is 9x 12 Oil on Canvas. We are using samples of oil paints we received from Winsor and Newton. The paint is the riches purple they could have created in my opinion. Then I took the brush and just splattered the paint for the background.
With summer almost here our new focus is on the fruit. Welcome to the Fruit Series 4 X 4 and 9 X 12 Oil on Canvas. There is something about summer and fruits that just makes summer stand out. Enjoy

Many times as artist we get to the place where we feel stuck and it is at that place of being stuck you start to question whether or not you should even be doing this thing called art as a career or a hobby.
Its doing these lean times of temporary despair that we have to step back and reevaluate what we are doing. Being an artist is not an easy path because it is a creative journey you are on instead of a career path.
Yes you want to make money at this but the real reason you are doing it is for the creative energy it gives you. Your doing it for the love of being able to be creative and also make a profit from it.
There are a lot of artist of all kinds, the arena is full of creative souls trying to find where they fit into this arena of creative oceans. You paint, draw, take photography, create computer art, performance art, and yet you still wonder where you fit into this ocean of art.
The only thing I can tell you is to keep creating and you will find your place. Remember your art is the journey of your soul as it keeps expanding to greater heights alone the way.

Tonight we went to the Winter Fest Tree Lighting Festival. This is the reality that Christmas is just around the corner and 2015 is almost out the door. Where did the year go.
We stayed long enough for the tree lighting and then left because it was cold. They even brought snow in for those who wanted to snow board.
Santa and Mrs Claus were there walking around greeting everyone, they had a group there called Heart and Soul line dancing who performed, there was a choir there singing Christmas Carols, and plenty of food.
All in all it was a good community event.
Be sure to follow us for more festivals, museums, and events. Like our page and leave a comment (we really do read them). Tune into our Periscope Art Scopes where we inspire the emerging artist with tips on Getting Your Work Seen………….
