Hi Everyone

Just a head's up that I am in my final week of residency at the Coast Hotel on Kingston near Fisherman's Wharf.  It has been a fun filled 3 weeks, meeting people, chatting about the artistic process, sharing travel stories, catching up with friends etc.  I hope you have all had a great summer and I for one am looking forward to a slower pace after a very busy summer.  I will be taking down the show Saturday, Sept. 30 and would love to see you before then or if there is any information you would like on your favorite piece, give me a shout or




I hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying the cooler weather.  Just a short note to let you know that I will be setting up at the Coast Hotel, 146 Kingston Street, near Fisherman's Wharf and painting in the lobby for the month of September.  I will be displaying 45 works through out the lobby and dining areas.  Work can also be viewed at but it would be lovely to see you in person.  I will be away at a retreat September 7 - 11 (paintings will remain hanging) otherwise I hope to be at the hotel most days from 11:00 - 4:00).
