I find Sharon Ellis's work visually stunning fun. Have a look. This exhibit is up through July 1st. I hope I get a chance to see it again (and again).

On Location In Malibu

The weather was outstanding yesterday, great for a drive to the coast to see paintings by members of the California Art Club. The clouds were those kind that are puffy and separated from each other like a mosaic of stepping stones across the sky.

There were over 50 well chosen, recent landscape paintings in this exhibition. Among them work by Dennis Doheny, Douglas Ball, Cathey Cadieux, David Gallup, Gerald Brommer, Steve Mirich, Frank Serrano, and Dan Pinkham.

All of this is at The Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art at Pepperdine University in Malibu through September 3rd.

A few days of sun and the climbing roses are all opening. These are on the deck right outside the studio, so when I open the door there is a wall of clovey-rose scent. Yuuummmmmmmmmm.................

Around lunchtime I got hungry and ran out to get a sandwich. Just as I returned and was getting out of my car I looked up to see a Red Tailed Hawk flying in to land on top of the telephone pole next to my house. I paused to watch and noticed that he had something in his claw. I could see a tail hanging down. As I continued to observe the hawk began biting off and eating pieces of what I presume was probably a lizard, or perhaps a snake, since it seems lizards seem to lose their tails under stress.
