|Black Grapes No.2 | 16 x 20 | oil on panel|
This will be the next painting headed to Tree's Place Gallery for my show in July with M. Collier, and I want to tell you, I had the best time working on it. Blowing the grapes up to this large size really gave me an opportunity to get into some serious detail, especially with the water droplets. I really hated to see this one end. It's funny, I discovered streaming episodes of Columbo on Netflix just as I began this painting, and had them running in the background as I worked. The series ran out about the same time as I finished. I don't think I'll ever look at this painting again without hearing Peter Falk's voice in the back of my mind.

I am also in the courting phase with another new gallery. It's called Christopher-Clark Fine Art in San Francisco. I'll be sending them two paintings Panchito (above), and Tractor (below). These will be presented at the San Francisco Art Fair May 17th through 20th under Christopher-Clark's banner, CK Contemporary. Here's hoping this becomes a mutually beneficial long term relationship. If you're in the San Francisco area during these dates and would like to attend, click here for a free one day pass to the fair.
