One year in the works and it is time to present 9 oil paintings in an upcoming group show "Portland Paints the Desert" at Brian Marki Gallery in Palm Springs.
Each artist has spent time painting works in the warm California desert amongst the rocks, cacti, palms and springs this past year. We will also be unveiling larger studio works that were inspired from our plein air pieces, so there is a size for every space and taste. Hope to see you there!
