Wow! What a Friday. Yesterday I participated in two shows for the First Friday Art tour here in Santa Cruz.

I hung new colorful acrylic paintings - 16"x16" works on canvas in the hallway at the up and coming University Business Park- where my studio is located.

The second show was at Greenspace, an eco-friendly home goods store- and the place that sells the Clay Paints.  Here I showed my larger 30"x30" Clay Paint Paintings on canvas.  The paints are made in Santa Fe, NM by a company called BIOSHEILD.

The paint, being made of clay has a rich earthy quality that I find very appealing. The colors dry a few shades lighter than when wet. My favorite color in the line is Onyx-a soft sensual BLACK!

My friend and fellow artist, Giorgia Siriaco also had a display of her clay paint paintings. People say we have a similar style?  You can see more of her work here:

No sales were made at the show, however Giorgia and I made a sweet trade at the end of the show. Score!

Giorgia already found a perfect spot for the paintings we traded!

...and these are the two I received in return from Giorgia. Love!
