My Agave Is Your Agave

The month of December proved to be a popular one for agave paintings.  I painted this commission of a blue agave for a collector in Scottsdale.  My largest one yet at 36″ x 60″. I have to say I was a little sad to send it off not having gotten much time to enjoy it myself.  But alas, I make paintings so others can enjoy them so off it went!

 

Just before Christmas I sold my Blue Agave Family painting to a native plant lover from LA’s  Westside.  Its always exciting to be found through Google – ahhh, the power of the internet!  I couldn’t have been happier to deliver it to it’s new gorgeous home.

Because this painting had been hanging over my fireplace for me to enjoy, I had to replace it before the company arrived for the holidays!  I found the largest canvas I had and painted a replacement, finishing just 2 hours before throwing a holiday party. Whew! I couldn’t bare the thought of a wall devoid of art so I painted this 30″ x 40″ foxtail agave alla prima!

If this is any indication of whats to come,  2012 will continue the agave trend as I gear up to paint more of this series.  A few of my agave paintings have been selected for Margaret Danielak’s upcoming show “Red” at the Pasadena Women’s City Club.  The opening reception will be Thursday, February 9th from 6-9 pm.  160 N. Oakland Avenue -Pasadena, CA  91101

Viva Agave!
