Gallery 4311 Show
This week I am busy framing 8 paintings for the San Diego Hospice Gallery 4311 Show that runs from January 9th through March 4th. It is a juried show and this is the second year that I will be participating. The facility is a beautiful place with plenty of parking. Last time the artist reception was very well done with live music, a very festive atmosphere and wonderful food and wine. I hope you can all make it! The best part of participating in this particular show is that a percentage of each sale goes directly to San Diego Hospice - a most wonderful and caring institution.
These two burro pieces will be included in the show. They were both painted of wild burros that were auctioned off here in San Diego at the BLM Auction last July. It was a hot, day with hard brilliant sun and strong shadows. The people from the BLM told me the burros were rounded up from Gala, Arizona. They were beautiful and a little shy but warmed up to me when I fed them slices of apples. I think they wanted to come home with me as much as I wanted them to!
Please come to the show and see all eight paintings and the art work of 12 other very accomplished artists. The reception is Sunday, January 16th from 2 to 4 pm.
