Galerie Julianne and Big Sur

Several weeks ago I received an email from a new opening gallery in Carmel, CA, wanting to show my work. I had been showing in Carmel up until a year or so ago, but that gallery became a victim of the poor economy. To make a long story short, I drove the 90 minutes to Carmel today and dropped off about a dozen paintings. The new gallery, Galerie Julianne, is still in the process of ramping up, but they are open & the gallery looks like a wonderful space in an ideal location. Carmel does not have street addresses, so, you can find them on Dolores Street between 6th and Ocean.

After finalizing everything with the gallery, I took off down the coast to paint and enjoy Big Sur. Below are a few shots from the day.

I stopped to do a painting at the below spot. I have been fighting a cold and congestion, so I tried to stay out of the brisk wind, but only lasted about 45 minutes painting, getting about half done…

I decided to just drive, hike, explore, snooze, and generally hang out until sunset. It was worth the wait.

There are a few more photos on flickr, which you can find here.
