The annual Dayton Visual Art Center held its 15th art auction the last Friday in April. My painting “Laguna Shore” was in the silent auction. Art was in the air – with some 90 pieces of art – paintings, sculpture, jewelry and installations bid on. I met the new owners of my seascape – they were pleased to win the bid. I painted it after visiting my family in Newport Coast, California and discovering that Laguna Beach was only walking distance away. It was such an artsy community …..filled with gallery after gallery of art, and much of the subject on the canvases whispered ‘ocean inspiration’.
Some good news - I’m in a new gallery in Troy, Ohio, located in the center square of town…(2 E. Main). The gallery is called The Art Vault, so named after its former occupants, a bank. The grand opening was May 19, 2012. My landscape paintings in oil are: “Lake Erie Rocks”, “Summer Glory” and “Prairie Field” – all are plein air which means painted on location. The Strawberry Festival is the first weekend in June – the gallery is in the circle, stop in to see all the beautiful art.
