August 2019 Newsletter

How are you? How is your summer going? Have you had a chance to see some amazing things this summer?

Sometimes it is easy to take certain things for granted -- like sight. But many people throughout the world have lost the gift of sight from severe cataracts or other serious eye problems. 

Each year, the Abstract Art Collective (of which I am a member) teams up with the JCC to do a beautiful juried art show and fundraiser for a truly remarkable international sight-giving organization (that is based in Santa Barbara): SEE International.... 

While Approaching 
Mysteries Within

SEE International Show and More

I am pleased to be part of the 2019 ArtSEE Exhibition show, including having two paintings exhibited: In Depth and When Approaching (shown above).

In Depth is my donated oil pastel painting on a 1' x 1' wood panel, and like all of the donated panels, 100% of the proceeds go to SEE International. The panel paintings only cost $100. For the other paintings in the show, like When Approaching, 25% of the proceeds go to SEE International. The ArtSEE Exhibit is at the JCC, located at 524 Chapala St., and will be open until August 20.

This is the last week to see two of my acrylics, Working Together and Mysteries Within, on display in Santa Maria at the Betteravia Gallery (511 E. Lakeside Parkway). Working Together won second place in this excellent show, which is co-sponsored by the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission and the Abstract Art Collective. 

On the Horizon

New Art and Quote of the Month

Especially during summer, I do most of my painting outside. Feeling connected to the life around me, I am surrounded by beautiful plants (including streaming vines), blue skies, and vibrant shades of green. My new large acrylic painting, Tendrils (above), was inspired by this.

Whether looking at the Pacific Ocean from California or Washington, or gazing at Prince William Sound in Alaska, I have always lost myself in horizons, particularly during the summer. My oil pastel, On the Horizon, reflects this. Do you enjoy horizons too?

My quote of the month is from Confucious: "Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."

Thank you for seeing beauty, for reading my newsletter and for supporting original contemporary abstract art. As always, I appreciate hearing from you.

Warm regards,
Member: Santa Barbara Art Association
