Well Attended Reception at LAAA's 2015 Open Show

I am settling into LA, which so far has been wonderful. Highlights include having one of my paintings, "Over" (24"x30", oil on canvas, $875), selected for the Los Angeles Art Association's 2015 Open Show at Gallery 825, up now through January 8. It was a huge honor to have my painting chosen out of 1200 submissions as one of "the very best in emerging art." 

Here's me in front of my painting at the opening reception on Dec. 12, which was well attended and a wonderful opportunity to meet other artists and art lovers! What made it extra special was that members of both my family and my partner, Ricky's, family were able to attend. I'm so grateful for all of their support and the opportunity for them to celebrate with me!

I wrote a post back in April with photos of "Over" in-process, so you can get a peak at how I go about creating such a piece. You can re-read the post here:
