cleaning the studio...

...and other adventures in art

In addition to the EDGE show I wrote about last week, opening May 6, I also have paintings hanging at Lulu’s at the Octagon, a cafe attached to the Museum of Art and History in downtown Santa Cruz.

This is a fabulous space, with large walls, good light, and a nice line of sight from across the room…perfect for paintings this size. Susan Hillhouse of the museum curates this space, and it was great working with her, Robbie Schoen and Marla Nova to select and hang the work. The show will be up until June 19th. Stop in and see it if you can, because my photo doesn’t do it justice!
