Through My Eyes - How I See It

I have another painting accepted to the wonderful gallery in Laguna Beach, Las Laguna Gallery. Dorland Leaves, a 20X20" oil painting, was completed during my residency at Dorland Mountain Arts Colony. This residency is one of my very favorites, great views and lots of peace and solitude surrounded by fabulous vistas. 

Johnny Rests was the first piece to appear at Las Laguna Gallery a few months ago during a dog themed show. I was very proud to have my piece in this show of amazing pet portraiture by terrific artists, some of which I follow regularly and admire. 

So if you're in the area, please stop by and see my work! And thank you to Las Laguna Gallery for accepting my work once again.
