Artists Against Drugs

I firmly believe that drugs are not the answer. Unfortunately, so many people turn to drugs not only recreationaly but through prescriptions from trusted professionals to “handle” problems that they have no solution for. I understand the need to make the problems go away but I’ve never believed that taking a pill would solve anything.
I support the non-profit Say No To Drugs every year by running (ok, mostly walking) the 5K held at Universal Studios.  When I was approached by the group’s organizer, Ryan Kugler, to donate art to the Artists Against Drugs Art Show I was delighted to contribute. The show is Saturday the 21st of May at Satine Boutique in West Hollywood.  I hope you will join me in supporting this group by attending the art show and hopefully taking home a piece of art to call your very own.  I’m told there is art from all kinds of artists including some by actor Jason Lee (My Name is Earl).  Who knows what kind of celebrity folk might show up for this! 
It’s sure to be a fun night…I hope to see you there!

SOPA Studios Collective Show

Last weekend I exhibited my paintings with SOPA Studios which was held in conjunction with the South Pasadena Art Walk. I had 9 paintings in the show including 3 new streetscapes of South Pasadena.  I sold my painting called Young Agave to a collector who’s wife just had to have the painting.

It was a busy night with a steady flow of people coming from the art walk.  Thanks to all my friends who came out to support me and a special thanks to Lisa Marsh for putting together such a great group at SOPA Studios.
