What a fun Party it was…

Friday the 13th came and went and with it 50 or so people popped into my Music Art reception at Nick’s On Grand, 223 Grand Avenue, South San Francisco. They looked, sipped, mingled, stayed for dinner, sat in with the band, and seemed to be having as good a time as I did. The artwork will be up for a couple more months, so if you didn’t make it, you still can. Restaurant hours are 11 – 8pm and my work is in all 3 areas, so start looking when you enter the front door.

Here are a few shots of the reception:

My Music Art is now in South San Francisco

The show went up yesterday – all the Chameleon Jazz pictures plus another 15 or so of my music artworks.

If you go very, very soon, you will probably find the film still covering the Chameleon pictures since the spackling isn’t done yet. Thank you to Nick’s On Grand owner, Kenny Annis for doing the hard work, and to mi querida amiga Frieda for helping make sure it was all evenly spaced.

RECEPTION IS FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 13 from 6pm. Jazz in the Patio from 7 provided by Steve Nelson and his quartet.

Here’s the Promo:

Great Lighting and an iphone

I attended a screening of Time Remembered, the story of jazz piano genius Bill Evans last night at the Lark Theater in Larkspur. It was preceded by a short concert by Dick Fregulia’s Bill Evans Tribute Band. The lighting was so well done that I had to shoot with my iphone. Here are a few of the results.

A few more Chameleons

Four new ones since the last post. Still plan on a couple more. There will be an exhibition in the Bay Area later in the year. Woo Hoo!

Another Winner

Just thought I’d announce that my Shop and Stop (below) was awarded a Special Recognition in the June competition from Light, Space and Time. (It’s also hanging at the SFWA gallery right now as part of their June show, but will come down on Saturday.

10th Solo Show at the Bay View Boat Club is up

I hung my MORROCO SHOW today and this poor photo (way too much morning glare) might entice you to come to the reception on Tuesday, June 18 from 6 – 8pm with live jazz from 7 until 10-ish.

Of course at the Reception I will have bins with matted prints and note cards beyond Morocco.

New ‘Chameleon’ Series

Currently I’ve finished 8 new renderings of musicians with a plan to do several more in the series.

 

You’ll find them in my Music portfolio on this site where you can see larger versions. Hope you like them – and I’d love to have any questions or comments!!

Paris Street Art

In my one week Paris adventure in April, I enjoyed finding street art – everywhere – but with great emphasis on Belleville, where I spent my last evening! Hope you enjoy it too.

Atelier des Lumières

One of the highlights of travel to Paris is the Atelier des Lumières. This time they were featuring a digital Van Gogh show, which I must say wasn’t as stunning as the Klimpt show I saw last year. However, I did click a lot and got several interesting pictures, many looking very ‘dark’ in mood. I’d love to get some comments on readers’ views. Here they all are.
