Shimmer I, 20 x 20 inches, pastel on gold-dusted paper.

My blog posts have been veering all over the artistic landscape recently, here is yet another sharp right turn. These is one of two abstracts I have done that I call "shimmer" paintings. Each takes a very long time to accomplish, but I like the effect. I will probably do one more of them. The picture does not do anything for the artwork--photography robs the art of all its iridescent qualities--but I thought to post it any way.

By the way, I will be exhibiting at an art sale in Moraga this week--here is some information:

Preserve Lamorinda Open Space Art Show

A benefit to preserve the remaining natural environment . The exhibit will feature artists from the Bay Area whose works depicts the beautiful rolling hills and marine estuaries, artists that are all making an effort to keep these places safe from development. A portion of the sales go to that effort.

Time: The show will open to the public from 10 am to 5 pm
Location: The Art Show will take place at St. Mary’s College in Moraga. Set up on the lawn next to the Hearst Gallery.
