Spring 2016 - Update and Upcoming Shows

April 29, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

2015 ended, for me, in Switzerland - high in the mountains of the Bernese Oberland, where I spent the week between Christmas and New Years attending a friend's birthday party.  What a great place for a celebration!  The weather was less wintry than I expected, with the lower elevations still fairly green, but there was a dusting of snow on the mountains above which provided a nice contrast.  Needless to say, there was some photography involved (see my Recent Additions).

At the end of March, I did a loop through Central California looking for spring wildflowers to photograph.  I had a special lens I wanted to try out, and with the El Niño winter just behind us, I was hoping to see large fields of flowers.  While many spots were just ordinary, there were a few that were quite spectacular, including an entire mountainside covered in California poppies that I visited near Santa Barbara.  (Also in Recent Additions.)

Spring is my busiest time for shows.  I just wrapped up a couple of exhibits in San Jose, including one at Art Ark, a wonderful gallery just south of downtown.  May is even busier.  The first 3 weekends I'll be exhibiting in 3 different locations:

  1. May 7-8 in Saratoga with Silicon Valley Open Studios - my 3rd year (see map at svos.org)
  2. May 14-15 at the Los Altos Fine Art Show in downtown Los Altos - my 2nd year (rotaryartshow.com)
  3. May 21-22 in Los Altos, also with Silicon Valley Open Studios (see map at svos.org)

I was featured again this year in a Los Altos Town Crier article about the upcoming show, as well as in a Metroactive Silicon Valley article.

I hope you can join me at one of these upcoming events so I can share some of my new pieces and the adventures they came from with you.
