Hanging Local Artists...

That's part of the URL to the article that came out today about my painting at Starbucks ;)

Once again, the writer Mary Gottschalk has done an excellent job describing the situation, she always gets it right.  I so hate having official portraits and photos taken, and the lovely Jaqueline Ramseyer makes it so much easier. Thank you Jaqueline for choosing a good shot from all your options!

Here is the article:

The Store is Open!

One of the things I'm working at being better at is the promotion, PR, marketing, social media, merchandising, selling, etc. etc. part of being a working artist.

On that note, I'm opening the doors wide open, drum roll......

Hello, Starbucks!

Excited to share that my newest painting is now installed at the Willow Glen, San Jose, Starbucks.
I think it really brightens up the back wall of the store!

Just as with the intention for the original painting (see blog posting from September 1, 2011) I wanted to capture a slice of daily life in a local neighborhood. Focusing on the community, the locale and the relationships between people, rather than a branded experience. Fortunately, that was exactly what Starbucks wanted as well!
