"Look - We can make works of art out of the contents of our wastebaskets."
....Georges Braque

Georges Braque was a founder of the medium of collage as a fine art medium. I love this quote from him as it sums up the idea of transformation, recyling, and creative expression.

Fun Photo Session

More of the Stepping-Up Series coming soon...

This is a "positional photo" from which I will create a new collage painting that will look something like this one...

Saturday I spent the morning taking photographs of shoes for positioning and composition. A friend from church volunteered to be my shoe model! She has some GREAT shoes too. I am looking forward to continuing my Stepping-Up Series of shoe collage paintings using these photographs as reference. Can't wait to start the fun!

Title: Peaceful Flight

What a fun art reception we had on the Second Saturday Evening of May 12th at 20th Street Art Gallery, ( ) Sacramento for the opening of my God's Wings Series of collage paintings. Thank you to the many friends, collectors, and art aficionados who attended the event. It is always a pleasure to have the opportunity to talk about my work and the dynamic Sacramento art movement in general. The show continues until May 30th, so if you did not get a chance to go opening night, there is still time.

Funny "Art Joke"

Recently a guy in Paris nearly got away with stealing several paintings from the Louvre. Fortunately he was captured only two blocks away when his van ran out of gasoline. When asked how he could make such an error he replied,

"I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh"
