Art as Gift Show in Willow Glen

I'm busy working on lots of small pieces for the annual "Art as Gift" show put on by my good friend Julie Stover every holiday season. This year it will be in the old Casa Casa space, 1355 Lincoln Ave, in downtown Willow Glen. In addition to paintings I'll have some quirky ornaments and if I can pull it off a couple of art dolls. Come by and see me...the show runs 3 days Dec 4/5/6 and there's a reception Friday, December 4th at 6-8pm.

I also have lots of new work up at Psycho Donuts! Go get yourself a Thanksgiving donut and check it out!

Featured Sketch Artist at $2. Tuesday

Kaleid Gallery is a cool community gallery in downtown San Jose that I've been involved with for about a year. Every third Tuesday they present "2 Buck Tuesday", a chance to get some little but great original art for only $2 bucks. In addition there are funky lectures, and live sketching and painting and live music. I'll have some little drawings and Gocco prints for sale, and we'll see what I come up with during the live sketch session. If you're in or around Kaleid on Tuesday, November, 17, come by!
