New pics on the block

"Summer Moon", acrylic on reclaimed fence post, 3.5"x3.5"x1.5"

With the Embassy of Cake piece finished and set aside to dry, it was time to get down to brass tacks- or wood blocks, in this case- for the April City Art Gallery show. I’m participating in the group show in the back room this April, which is themed “Urban/Rural”. I actually shivered with glee when I discovered that, since a large block of my artwork falls into that category. With only a few woodblocks left in my shop, I busted out 5 new ones within the span of two days, presented tonight for your viewing pleasure. 😉

"Blue Hill Barn", a scene from the Angels Camp area of Northern California

"Bay Bluffs", a spot of the coast on Highway 1 near Half Moon Bay

"Tempest", from a rainy day on the Delta

"Water Plant" from somewhere along Highway 5 between Sacramento and Tracy

These pieces are up for sale at City Art this month along with several other landscapes on woodblock, two framed drawings and Looming. Oh, and there’s a bunch of other really great art from other artists too, I suppose, so you might want to come check it out. 😉 The opening for this month’s show will be this Friday, April 1st from 7-10 pm at 828 Valencia St. San Francisco. There will be free wine and snacks, plus a Magic Curry Kart will be making an appearance. Come say hi!

P.S. There’s only one more day to enter your guess for a chance to win a free print! Add a comment to the “Embassy of Cake” post to guess how many hours it took for me to complete the painting. The closest person will win a free print of it! Enter by March 31st, midnight PST. Too much pressure? Here are a couple of detail shots to help you make up your mind:
