Apala G. Egan is a freelance reporter doing an article about three or so artists in Los Altos that she found in the Silicon Valley Open Studios catalog. She wanted to know information for beginning artists. So, I told her about the Los Altos Art Club and Art Ventures, and what kind of papers, brushes, and paints I think are good.
She wanted 2 or 3 of my painting images for her story which will appear in several local newspapers. I sent her: Vineyard, Barn with Blue Chicken, and Small Tulips.
Every year I do Silicon Valley Open Studios (SVOS) with several other artists. The entire organization is very large, covering many towns and several counties.
This year I showed 20 paintings as well as matted works of various sizes, scarves, the I’d Spied a Crocodile book, greeting cards, etc. It’s a fun, outdoor show and a lot of friends drop by.
“Hidden Villa Fence,” “Pelicans,” “Spiky Trees” Always the first three weeks in May.
May 2015 SVOS, the first three weekends. But the gallery show will be up for five weeks.
