EGGs Coloring Book; 2020

Hi there, I have made a coloring book using the 86 images I’ve created since the beginning of 2020.

I started these drawings when my first intention was to make a piece of art a day for the year of 2020, it being my 70th year on the planet. BUT, I got distracted after 86, about 1/4 of what I needed for the full book and I thought there would be writing. This also happened at the same time the coronavirus started quarantining everyone. One would think this is a good time to concentrate on the artwork but not for me. My work is based on my feelings and the drawings stared to show my worry so I stopped and took a detour to make them a coloring book. AND this is what I made. They are fun and alive in their antics their sense of life during our time in quarantine. Their discoveries and their questions. Basically there is a lot going on which should make for a really sweet drawing adventure. YOU CAN add patterns and symbols and lots of color to your pages bringing the EGGs into your own special world.

The book is available from amazon, here is the link. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0891ZYQ56?ref_=pe_3052080_397514860

I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do.

Painting: Watercolor on Paper. There is a saying “When Pigs Fly” I have been intrigued with for years and finally painted a series of three. I often drive through Topanga Canyon and am inspired by the flying pig that is mounted high up on a pole somewhere in the middle of it. The painting is in watercolor and I use a brush for the back ground wash but a pallet knife for the rest… I like the surreal look it gives the landscape.

Water Works Show Opening Ojai

Water Works Show at the Porch Gallery, Ojai

Symbol; 22×30; watercolor on lana

Show up from July 5 – August 17, 2014

Curated by Juri Koll
With Catalog Essays by Peter Frank, Shana Nys Dambrot & John Seed

The artists in this show use watercolor, inks, and other liquid media for a variety of reasons – some love the risk of not being able to alter the result once it hits the paper. Others have a more formal reason for the process. Some use the medium as a contemplative, almost reverential experience, or for “quiet meditation or being present in the moment”, as Shana Nys Dambrot says. All these motivations inspire these works, and engage the audience with the here and now, regardless of when the work was completed.

“I paint watercolors because they are alive, their blending creating another reality that was not planned or expected.  The chemistry of the medium is all about water… in the air, time of day and year, how liquid the paint and if the paper is prewet or dry. For me, painting with watercolor is “high-risk” you never know how a piece will turn out. Water, the flow of life and change.”
