Unfortunately on Sept 30, 2019, The Cali Life Gallery has burned down in the Mozy Cafe fire which was located in the same building at 694 N Coast Hwy 101, Encinitas, CA 92024, 760-525-5514. There is a GOFUNDME effort for the gallery.
I lost 11 original acrylic paintings. A few were my favorites. I still have print-making ability for the lost ones on this website. I was preparing for a solo show in December but the gallery is totally destroyed and the show will not take place.
I have plenty of paintings available, but the originals lost are:
- Oceanside Pier in Fog
- Gray Day Trio
- Breaking Wave with Birds
- Three Palms Supermoon at Solana Beach
- San Diego Sandpiper
- Solana Beach Low Tide on a Gray Day
- Encinitas Polished Stone Cairns
- Cliff Cairns at Encinitas
- Three Pelicans at Baja
- Bat Rays in the Surf
- Pelicans Surfing
I also have art displayed at bG Gallery in Santa Monica, CA, 3009 Ocean Park Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90405
My purpose for painting is no different than any other artist – I have the need to express my world visually, starting with the blank canvas. I naturally detour down paths away from the mainstream and my art reflects that journey. I love incorporating full moons into tonalist and conceptual art works. Mathematical themes dominate another of my series, reflecting my engineering background. I am currently launching into science art, particularly astronomy and physics. Check out my new gallery on this website.
Most of my favorite pieces exhibiting land and seascapes are tonal in nature. I have continued in this direction with a portion of my work. I enjoy intellectual art, providing the observer with the opportunity to put their own spin on its interpretation. Realism and modernism emphasized in some of my works give rise to multiple meanings, which can change depending on the mood of the observer. Like all art, the viewer relates to the image in very personal ways and as an artist I am open to their interpretations.
Overall, I like to believe my art is a positive statement about natural things, both known and unknown! Each of my website galleries is unique. Detailed Gallery Statements are available on each site.
