Alameda 2012 Open Studio - June 2&3 and 9&10

Date: June 2-3 and June 9-10
Time: 11am-6pm
Location: 406 Baywood Road, Alameda CA 94502
Open Studios Web Site:

I will be having an Open Studio at the townhouse in Alameda this June 2 & 3 and June 9 & 10. I will have over a hundred paintings framed and up on the walls. Landscapes, portraits, figurative and still life painting plus lots of unframed paintings.
Most of the paintings were painted around the country in plein air. From around Lake Tahoe to Colorado to Provincetown. Usually they are painted in one session from 45 minutes to 6 hours. Occasionally I will go back a second or third time to finish them up.
Some of the larger paintings are painted in the studio usually based on a plein air piece along with photos that I shot of the location. Several of the studio paintings can be seen along with the plein air version at the Alameda Open Studio.
Come on down and see my work and have a glass of wine and visit!
