Arrangements in space

Above the stairs at my studio - I love fitting paintings into spaces but this arrangement will probably have to come down to make way for new paintings at Open Studios. These are all scenes from Headlands Center for the Arts' Mystery Ball.
In addition to the upcoming shows listed in last month's entry, I will also be in the UCSF Alliance Health Project's Art for Aids. I haven't been at this spectacular fundraiser since they began holding it at the City View at the Metreon and can't wait to see. Friday, October 25, 2013 5:30 - 9:30pm at 135 Fourth Street, San Francisco.
I also signed up to show at City Art Gallery October 30 - December 1. In honor of the time of year, I will show Day of the Dead paintings, many of them new and to be on view for the first time at Open Studios at the end of October. 
In addition to the Day of the Dead scenes, I have some new small night time landscapes, bar scenes on canvatex to be behind glass, and it just happens that I have been painting children a lot recently. Children are a challenging subject, with their chubby faces that can go so wrong, but these are bold, colorful children, in costume and out in the night - maybe even some gypsy children will be on the way!
