The California Paintings
See more of the paintings (please) from California and other spots in the Places Gallery on my web site. (More keep getting added.)
I plan on showing my California pieces in Virginia sometime soon.
One reader from Israel wrote to me about how much he looks forward to getting my blog posts each morning in his email. He also told me to keep it up, every day, no excuses. I don't know if that's feasible ... but it's nice to know that he enjoys getting a painting in his mailbox regularly.
Thank you for reading!
