In June last year, there was a devastating fire at New Masters Gallery, where I have shown my paintings for almost 40 years. My paintings were safe, and a couple of months later, they moved into a temporary home, blocks away from the old location. On July 9th, they had a grand re-opening at their old spot, Dolores between Ocean and 7th, in Carmel. It is a beautiful updated gallery with the same comfortable and classy feel of the old place.
After the fire, I finished a lovely commission, and then, I stopped for a while. Well, actually, I stopped for more than a year. But, today I finished my first new painting since then. Surprise; it is an otter!
So, anyone looking for new work, it is about to commence. Here’s the first one, “Little Otter(s) 17”.
