My client just sent me this great shot of a piece I did for for her Hollywood Regency designed home in California. I incorporated gold leaf in this piece and worked acrylic like a watercolor. I absolutely am in love with this framed. It really was the icing on the cake for this piece and it brings out the gold in the painting.

Title ‘Playland at the Beach’ – original large watercolor 22″ x 30″ – mid century style
When I was growing up, my parents took us to ‘Playland’ in San Francisco. What great childhood memories of the The Fun House, Laffing Sal and The Giant Camera Obscura that was moved to a new location next to the Cliff House when Playland closed in 1972. That is still there today.
A home without art has no soul.
In May, ‘The Highlands’ watercolor painting will be available at the San Mateo Eichler Home Tour in California.
The US has been hit by a cold snap and California is no exception. This girl is not one for the cold so I’m looking forward to a warm up. For now I’ll just have to settle on my warm cup of coffee. Cheers!
Painted on smooth Arches Hot Press with one color of gouache to create a movement that only this kind of paper can provide. My signature was incorporated into the design so this painting could be hung in every direction.
Bold red, purple and green watercolor.
I recently watched a documentary about artist Joan Mitchell (1925 – 1992). Her paintings were so alive I couldn’t help but to be inspired by her work. My piece you see here is my tribute to Joan.
