Catchin' Up!

I can't believe it's been a month since my last post!  Its almost scary how fast the time goes.  On second thought it IS SCARY!

Happily some of my delinquency is due to a great painting trip to Ft. Bragg and Mendocino with artist friends for about the 5th or 6th year in a row.  This time our luck finally ran out and we had mostly challenging weather, but that didn't seem to dampen anyone's spirits ... athough other parts might have gotten more than dampened!  It was a good trip.  I look forward to next year.

Unfortunately as soon as I returned from Ft. Bragg I had some health problems which required a little recovery time.  I tried to put that time to good use by beginning work on a new website!  Within the next two weeks I will have up and running with any luck.  The new site will combine my art gallery and blog into one interconnected entity.  It will also provide many tools for promoting and selling my work.  My gallery is currently at and my blog is currently on the blogger platform, which is where you are if you are reading this.  Both have provided yeoman service for several years but it's time to move into something that allows me to display, promote and sell my art more effectively.  In the near future when you try to log into either of my current sites, you will be redirected to my new location.  I  hope to see you there!!

Meanwhile, here are two of my plein air paintings from the Ft. Bragg paint-out.

Surf at McKerricher Beach   Oil on 12 x 16 linen panel  (SOLD)

A Gray Morning in Noyo Harbor    8 x 16 oil on linen panel  (SOLD)

  1. Bruce, It is so good to see your Fort Bragg post. The paintings are lovely and congratulations on the two sales!

  2. Thank you Ruth! I know you have also sold some of your work done on that trip. Congratulations to you too! Sales sure add icing on the cake (we never called it icing when it was a kid. It was FROSTING!", but the trip was reward enough. I hope we can do it again next year.

  5. Hi Vickie! Thank you for the nice comment. I know you also had a lot of success on this Ft. Bragg trip with your outstanding palette knife paintings. (Not to mention celebrating a new future daughter-in-law! )A great trip for all of us!

  6. You always enjoy Fort Bragg and bring back some nice work. Can almost feel McKerricher Beach looking at your work
    Good luck with the new site, I'm looking forward to visiting it.

  7. Hi Neil....Ft. Bragg has definitely become a favorite spot. Thanks for the great comments and for stopping by to say hello. The new site is close...there's much tweaking to do, but it's getting there.
