It’s been chilly this fall. But it will be warm and cozy in my studio for this weekend and next, 11 a.m.–6 p.m., as I open my studio to you, the frenzied art-buying public.

Take some of these items home with you to treat yourself or someone you love:

  • Framed prints, plus matted prints you can frame however you like. They come in sizes from 8″×10″ to 32″×40″.
  • My book of night photos, Good Night, Ocean View, in softcover or hardcover

There will be time during the show to order prints for whatever holiday you celebrate. Plus, there are lots of prints on hand to take home with you. I ship too, for those choosing gifts for faraway loved ones.

All the best this holiday season, and may next year be your best year yet. Hope to see you at my studio soon.

Winter Open Studio 2010

By | Exhibition | No Comments

I hope, like me, you’re enjoying fall and the holiday season. This weekend and next, 11 a.m.–6 p.m., I’ll open my studio to the frenzied art-buying public.

And to make my work even more affordable for those on tight budgets, I’ve made a few changes:

  • 8″×10″ prints are available again.
  • Unmounted prints. You can mat and frame them however you like. They’re much cheaper to ship too. You know I offer international shipping, right?
  • New, lower pricing.

There will still be time to order most prints for Christmas or winter solstice. And there are lots of prints to choose from to take home with you. Did I mention that my Night Photos screensaver is only $20 and makes a unique stocking stuffer? It’s so true.

Also, I’m excited to have finished my book of photos, Good Night, Ocean View. I expect to have copies of it by the second weekend. You can preview and buy it online or at my show.

Whew! I better get busy. Hope to see you soon.

For the seventh time, I’m happy to be participating in Pro Arts’ East Bay Open Studios. I’ll have some new prints and old favorites. Remaining 8″×10″ prints are only $75, and my popular Night Photos screensaver is $20.

The show takes place over the first two weekends in June and involves over 450 artists throughout the East Bay, mostly in Oakland and Berkeley. You can see an online preview of the work being exhibited on the Pro Arts Gallery website or in-person previews in Oakland, Berkeley, or Richmond.

Some very local artists and I have collaborated to form the North Berkeley Artists Walking Tour, a self-directed tour of studios in the northwest section of town. I’ll have maps of the tour and postcards from other artists on the walk.

While you’re here, pick up a free copy of the Directory of East Bay Arts, the color catalog with maps to the studios, an arts calendar, and other things East Bay art lovers need to know.

So please stop by my studio between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m., say hello, check out my work, and tell me what you think. If it moves you, please take some home so you can be inspired every day.

Winter Open Studio 2009

By | Exhibition | No Comments

Like last year, I’m mostly doing my own thing. I’ll be opening my studio to you this weekend and next, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. I’ll have $20 screen savers, which make great stocking stuffers, and a variety of prints to choose from. As you know, although there are hopeful signs of recovery on the way, the economy remains sluggish. These are times when we especially need beauty and inspiration in our lives, and art can provide them like no mass-produced item can (not even an iPhone). So to make it easier for you to bring my art home with you, and because they’ve been such a success, I’m extending my discounts for this show:

  1. 20% off all prints larger than 8″×10″. If you’ve been waiting to buy a print, now’s the time.
  2. In-stock 8″×10″ prints are on close-out for only $75, down from $125, or 40% off.

You’ll receive an even larger discount if you make a multi-print purchase. So come by my studio, say hello, and bring some inspiration into your life. Or you can call or use my website to place your order and receive the discounts.

Also, I’ve helped organize a walking tour of artists within a few blocks of my studio. You can pick up a free map and listing to our studios and go on a little tour, enjoying the fall foliage and picking up some holiday gifts. Bring some friends along for even more fun!

I hope to see you and your friends at the show, so please tell everyone you think may be interested. Thank you for your interest and support, and happy holidays!
