Behind every great artist, there is almost always an artistic great who is an informative source of inspiration.
This show will feature over 35 artists and 80 original pieces of art in a wide variety of media including printmaking, stoneware, welded steel, photography, collage, mixed media, oils, acrylics, watercolors, and colored pencil. Beside each piece of work exhibited in the show, artists have provided a brief statement describing how their favorite artist has influenced their work.

I completed the 2021 Strada Easel Challenge in January. Thirty one days of painting/drawing and posting. See my work on the Paintings page.
I'm honored to have been selected as one of the artists for the first-ever Concord Utility Box project. At the corner of Salvio and Willow Pass Streets in Concord, CA
Fitting with the theme of "Market & Music", my design was inspired by Mt. Diablo, local music, and the bounty of fresh produce all around us.
