Sun Dance - Sold, and a Possible New Gallery!

I worked on this painting as my demo in the "Meet the Artists Day" event in Filoli Garden over the weekend, and managed to finish it today. One of the curators of the Filoli "Handcrafted and Through the Lens" show, Teresa Silvestri, who is a wonderful watercolor artist specialized in pet portraits, saw the painting and wanted to have it -- before it was even finished. I was so flattered!... So, when it is finished today, I carefully matted it and put it in a clear bag, drove down to Redwood City where her gallery is to deliver it...

Sun Dance,  Watercolor on Arches 140# Cold Press Paper , 8"h x 8"w, 2012 # 45


You can buy an 8" x 8" Giclee print of this painting from my etsy shop here ($35 + Shipping, limited eidtion of 50): 

And today must really be my day, because on top of the instant sale, she invited my to join the co-op gallery she is a member of! The gallery -- Main Gallery of Historical Redwood City, is literally inside one of the oldest buildings in Redwood City, which is a lovely garden house. They have many wonderful creative artists members, but only two watercolor artists and no one specialized in florals, so it is a natural fit! Now I have to really speed up painting some pieces for their holiday show... I will submit five pieces of my work for official jurying process at the end of October. Wish me good luck!


  1. Wishing you luck and congratulations on the sale of this piece. It really is glorious.

  2. Beautiful. Absolutely stunningly beautiful. I can nearly smell the perfume emanating from this. Fantastic news about being asked to join the gallery. That is definitely a dream come true, in my book. I wish you the very, very best of success for all five of your submissions. I think the judging panel will have a difficult time selecting the best out of whichever five you enter, as they are all so beautiful.

  3. Wow - and yellow flowers are the hardest of all!

  4. Best of luck! Greatly deserved, you are a great artist!
    Warm regards.

  5. Congratulations and good luck, but I'm sure you don't need it. This painting is amazing -- I think I may have told you that before. It truly is spectacular and it's no wonder it was spoken for before it was even completed. Yippee for you -- I know you'll do well at the gallery. :)

  6. This flower is amazing! A real show stopper. Happy to have found you. I hope you continue to post...
