My Art outside of San Francisco

My friend Samantha Buller (fellow artist) lives in Kansas City where she saw one of my paintings in an interior design store associated with the Blue Gallery and sent me this picture.

This is her in front of the interior design store.
Thanks Samantha for sending these to me. What a surprise!

Some fun shots after the crowds left with fellow artist RogerSF wearing one of his shirt designs. It was a great show with a lot of nice people and new friends. Linda Ryan did an amazing job with the show and the wine and art crawl in Livermore. Thanks Linda!

Two Woman Show Starting This Month

I will be participating in a two woman show at Ryan Art Gallery in Livermore starting this month with fellow painter Courtney Jacobs. I hope that you might be able to make it by the show at some point or come out to the reception on March 26th during the Livermore Art and Wine Crawl.

March 16th to April 10th

A two woman show juxtaposing the fluid color of abstract painter Courtney Jacobs with the gently muted layered figurative and abstract paintings of Sola Sawyerr.

End of the Black History Month Exhibition Hiram W. Johnson State Office Building

The Black History Month Exhibition was a success and will end this month. I recently went back to present a talk about my art with fellow artist and photographer Nancy Duranteau. Below are some photos from that day.

The East Bay Area Figurative Exhibition Photos

The artist reception for The East Bay Area Figurative Exhibition at the Ryan Fine Art Gallery in Livermore was great. Linda and her staff did a wonderful job with the show. There were a lot of people in and out of the gallery all night despite the rain. Here are some pictures from the end of the evening.
