I sat in the car with my little tiny sketch book and little tiny watercolors, listening to Bob Dylan, "Like a Rolling Stone" wondering what could be better than that? (This year, that song was voted number one song of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine.)

not mine! The business . . the car wash business . . . !
That's where these little sketch paintings are from.
I was excited to find out my oil painting, "I Liked His Hair" won second place in the Escondido Arts Partnership Show, Local Color XII juried by Susan Pollock, Public Art Consultant, City of Escondido!! The show runs February 8-March 24, 2007.

Lots and lots of colorful dried up reddish, brownish black trees and golden brown dried up leaves. I sat by a little tiny part of the stream that wasn't dried up but when I sat on my beach chair I couldn't see it. It was pretty nice out today, about 75.

Sitting in the parking lot I put the ink to the test. It took a while getting used to the pen, getting reacquainted with the forward motion only. It's not my style any more but I will probably use my investment on a piece soon.

Me and Susan had some nice art talks while painting:
I told her that after 20 years or so of watercolor painting,
I really didn't feel like a "real" artist until I painted in oils.
She told me that after 20 years or so of oil painting
she really didn't feel like an artist
until she could paint a watercolor glaze.

Resolution is to paint on location every day in 2007
This is a sketch of Gordon Bashant giving
his watercolor demo at the art club meeting.
He has a great whimsical style of expressionism.

The NCSFA field trip to the Bowers Museum, Irvine Museum and Laguna Beach Museum of art was the destination. In the company of old and new friends I found inspiration, eduation and yes, some elation. Here is my painting on location while at the Bowers.

(San Diego North County).
The coffee shop and cafe are closed on Monday's
so it was nice and quiet.
A little lady trimmed hedges
and the resident dog pranced around as I painted.

"Free Tuesdays" offered a visit to the Model Railroad Museum. It wasn't too relaxing with all the little kids running around but I enjoyed it just the same. Here are a few pics and also one of my sketch of the bell tower in Balboa Park, San Diego.
