Show and Farewell Party at Pie Eyed Gallery!

Have you ever stopped in at the colorful Pie Eyed Gallery at 2371 Gravenstein Hwy South in Sebastopol to see Lauri Luck’s and other local artists’ work. . .and maybe have a piece of the most amazing pie? In any case you won’t want to miss this weekend’s show, which will be the last and have more art than ever – mine included. I’ve released a flight of my Party Chicks (paintings) for the show and I’ll be there this Friday for the opening. Hope you can make it. Here’s the details:

Opening: Friday May 10th from 3-7

May 11th and 12th, open both days 12-4

2371 Gravenstein Hwy South, Sebastopol

Look for the ART and PIE sign and turn at the Giant Yellow Duck!

Ready for the Red Carpet

Since I took my Party Chick paintings over for the show at Corrick’s Gallery in Santa Rosa I’ve been missing them.  And luckily a new flock flew into my studio just in time for the Academy Awards tonight.  I wonder what the fashion critics will have to say about their sense of style!


#1 – Acrylic and “skins” on canvas, 12″ X 12″

I do hope you’ll help me with names!  I haven’t gotten that far yet and could definitely use ideas.







And of course they would love it if you pretended you were an Academy member and voted for your favorite!

Another spin off of the peahen – this gal sporting a hat which reminds me of one I tried on at the Sausalito Art Festival recently – the most glorious concoction which reminded me of how deprived our fashion lives have become, out here in Sonoma County at any rate, where jeans and straw sun hats make more sense than high heals and little poofy hats perched precariously at an angle.  I mean that just doesn’t cut it when you’re always on your way out to feed the chickens or toss rotting apples off the pathway.

But oh, how lovely!  I’ve decided to call this series of bird paintings “Party Chicks” (rather than Birds) even though I might get some unexpected search engine driven visitors.  But why not?

I just had a session with a private student who found me when she was searching for a recipe for roasted beets.  No kidding.  That brought her to my husband’s blog and finally to mine where she recognized a connection with the art I do. I have a good recipe for roasted beets too!
