My sketchbook is in Atlanta this weekend! It traveled there in the new Sketchbook Project Bookmobile, a rebuilt 1985 Piaggio with custom shelves, hand painting, and the ability to carry over 1,000 sketchbooks, but fit into small spaces and even go inside. Stop by to see my sketchbook and the cute Bookmobile at the Ponce City Market, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30308.

Catalog call number: 347.34-10 


Saturday, September 22nd: 3-7 pm

The Bookmobile heads south!

New Style Art Prints

I'm very excited about my new style of digital prints! An alternative to standard framed prints, the images are mounted on sturdy but lightweight three quarter inch thick foam blocks with lightly textured black edges. Crisp cut edges look clean and modern. Stainless steel hanging mount as well as corner spacers on the back ensure flush-to-the-wall hanging. No frame necessary. These are fine quality prints!

Available only on eBay and 100% of the sale price goes to the ACLU! Yes, more donations. Make art, do good; buy art, do good!

Opening bid is only $50 for each of six 12"x12" pieces from my Songbook Series. See the listings here. Auctions close next Wednesday!

For the 2018 Sketchbook Project, artists could choose from several themes. "Textures, Lines & Graphics" was perfect for me! 


"Sketchbook" is broadly interpreted by participating artists. Mine includes a brief intro plus a total of 28 digital geometric drawings printed on pages made from glossy photo paper and rebound into the 5"x7" book. 

In addition to being held in the permanent collection of the library, the sketchbooks will be digitized and searchable online, and the books themselves will go on tour this summer to Toronto, Chicago, and Atlanta!

Fine Arts Federation Show Photos + Tucasa Women's History Month Show Closes

The Fine Arts Federation Membership Show is an annual event at the Betsy Leuke Creative Arts Center Gallery in Burbank, CA. It usually features close to 60 artists. My entry was a drawing from 2001 that had never been shown before. There's always a lot of pottery in this exhibit because the center has an active pottery studio in the back. The gallery itself is beautiful. The show closed March 22nd.


This event celebrated the renaming of the center in honor of
the late Burbank arts supporter, Betsy Leuke.

Partial view of the beautiful, large gallery.

My work on the left.

Title: "Chega de Saudade" ("No More Blues"), a favorite Jobim samba.

Personal favorite: lovely hand-painted bowl.

Another view. I can't find the artist's name!

Several ceramic pieces, including a prize-winner.

Title: "Empty Vessels"




Tucasa celebrated National Women's History Month with an art exhibit featuring women artists. It opened March 2nd with "An Art & Music Night" at Sabor y Cultura in Los Angeles, CA. I had five mounted digital prints from my "Songbook" series in this show, which just closed on April 30th. Sabor y Cultura, known as a "coffeehouse with flavor and culture," is a charming venue that offers tasty light meals and evening entertainment in addition to its rotating art shows.

I'm delighted that my 36"x36" digital print on canvas entitled, "Notes 101C," sold at a premium price of $500 in last month's fundraising auction benefiting Art Share L.A. Thank you to the generous collector who purchased it!


I will not be at the Brewery Art Walk, but my mask will! Curator Dulce Stein will recreate her Latino Art Museum mask show in the studio of Ashira Siegal Fox. My mask: $100. Art Walk is April 7th and 8th from 11 AM to 6 PM both days.




Coming soon: Rochester Contemporary Art Center's annual "6x6" show which raises funds for the center in Rochester, NY. All work is six inches square and sells for only $20! You'll get details in time for the global online preview on May 18th.





Coming soon: The Brooklyn Art Library Sketchbook Project. Located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY, the library walls are lined with shelves that hold the many sketchbooks currently in the collection, created by artists from around the world. The 2018 Sketchbooks will be digitized and searchable online, and the books themselves will go on tour this summer. My book is in progress!
