The Lawler Art Gallery

I wanted to post a few pictures of the new Lawler Art Gallery, now open in Newport Beach. I have been busy these past few weeks helping my sister, Linda Lawler, turn her two room art studio into a gallery. One room is still used as her studio, but also displays her paintings from trips to Zambia and Fiji. The front room has been transformed into a small intimate gallery. The gallery exhibits a variety of paintings by local artists, including myself.

White Daisies selected for Salon International Exhibit

"White Daisies" 9x12 oil on linen


I am excited to annouce that "White Daisies" has been juried into the Salon International 2010 Exhibit at the Greenhouse Gallery of Fine Art in San Antonio.  I am very honored to be a part of this wonderful exhibit for the third consecutive year.  Greenhouse Gallery said they had close to 1,300 entries this year, and choose 392 paintings for the show.  You can understand if I am a bit nervous, and feel the stress when I select a painting(s) to enter into a juried show!

I had been thinking about a set-up of white Daisies with red fabric for months.  By the time I bought the daisies and brought everything together for the still life, I had a very strong idea of what the composition would be and what the feel of the painting should be.  It was my hope to combine the boldness and drama of red and white, with the softness of the fabric and flowers.  I know I say it often, but it was important for me to keep it fresh and painterly.  I am very pleased with how the painting turned out.  Enough to enter it into the Salon International 2010! April 10-April 30th.
