Cabrillo Pavilion Arts Center

Tree Frog Plays Chameleon

Today was the ingathering for The Artists of Step One "Beginning Anew" Art Show at the Cabrillo Pavilion Arts Center in Santa Barbara, California. Both of my pieces were accepted, and the piece on the left, "Tree Frog Plays Chameleon", won third place!

The other piece is shown below, and I realize this is the only picture I have of it. It's such a bad picture that I didn't even bother to gray out the background in the mirror! So I will have to go down to the show and take a good picture.

The reception will be Thursday, February 9, 2012 from 5 - 7 pm.

New Mosaics and a Cat

I'm getting back into the swing of things.  On the left is a mosaic of flowers I'm working on. I have a new ring saw and have been having fun cutting all sorts of shapes. 

Below is another heart that I patterned after another larger heart I sold recently. Since Valentine's Day is coming up soon, I thought I should get into the spirit.This heart is very small...about 5" across. The flowers are cut from an English stoneware plate. 

Then we have Biscotti up in the garage rafters. And below is a watering can commission I'm finishing today. It has two sides; the flower circle and the sunflower. The client said pink was her favorite color and sunflowers were her favorite flower. I'm going to grout it today with a combination of gray and pink.

The Good Cup

Are you wondering where I've been? Things have been quite busy, but I did get my show hung at the Good Cup coffee house on the Mesa. Two pieces have been sold already. I've replaced them with new mosaics. The Good Cup has lots of windows so the mosaics sparkle in the light. And it's a very cozy atmosphere to sit and have a bakery treat.

If you live near Santa Barbara, please stop by and see the show and have a delicious cup of coffee. They are in the Lazy Acres shopping center, 1819 Cliff Drive, Santa Barbara.
