La Luz de Jesus Gallery The 4th Annual Coaster Show Original Paintings, Angel Fairies + August Sketches...

These two small painting have been accepted to The 4th Annual Coaster Show at La Luz de Jesus Gallery...  The one with pink hair is "Lotus" and the one with red streaks in her hair is "Orchid."  These angel fairies are little 4"x4" acrylic paintings. 

It will run September 2 – October 2, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, Sept. 2nd, 8-11 PM
Closing Party: Sunday, Oct. 2nd, noon-six PM

Location: 4633 Hollywood Boulevard Los Angeles, CA. 90027
Phone: (323) 666-7667

Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend the opening, but I am hoping to go to the closing party and sometime before that to see the show.  If you're in the Los Angeles area it looks like it will be a great show, you may also see the pieces online here.   I believe that after the opening, they will take phone orders.  All of the pieces are 4"x4" square or round and there is a ceiling price of $250, although most are below that, mine are priced at $100 each.  I'm pretty excited about being included in this show!

Gallery Hours:
11 to 7 PM Monday to Wednesday
11 to 9 PM Thursday to Saturday
Noon to 6 PM on Sunday
The gallery is located inside the Soap Plant/Wacko complex.

These are completed works, I plan to post closer views of them on another day.  I also usually post at least one finished piece on Tuesdays if you'd like to come to visit!  You also may see some of my finished paintings at if you'd like.

I'm joining in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:

Here is a sketch of a flower that I believe is a clematis.  I think these flowers have a delicate grace.  I'm unsure if I'll paint it, but I did enjoy sketching it.

I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in August.  This is day 26.   

This is a rough sketch.
