"Poolside Sunbathing" by Andrew Daniel

"Poolside Sunbathing" by Andrew Daniel
10" x 14" oil on wood panel

A couple weeks ago, I went on a family vacation in the San Bernardino Mountains. We spent some time each day at the pool, with my wife soaking up the sunshine while I painted. It was a lot of fun piecing this composition together from the various people and objects. My wife and the life guard were nice enough to pose for me, while the swimmers were done from photos on my phone.

"Salt Marsh Trees" by Andrew Daniel

Wonders of technology! I'm out backpacking with my daughter and her friend's family near Bend, Oregon. Yet, it is still possible to post this with my phone! I painted this looking out at the salt marshes in the arcata marsh. This group of trees have been calling to me for several months, but I always thought the colors were too muted to make an interesting painting. Lately tho, I've been deliberately exploring muted colors in my work. They restrained color palette feels indicative of Humboldt, and when I paint them, they feels somehow more expressive.

'Tiger Sketch' by Theresa Oats

We visited the San Diego Zoo this year and were very taken with the beauty of the tiger.   Very calmly he scanned the crowd of visitors as they admired him from across and above.
He looked directly my way as I took a photo of him.
I plan to complete this 12x16''oil portrait of him for the show and fundraiser opening
 Aug 2, from 6-10 pm. at the Mercer Fraser Building at 77 West 2nd Street Eureka.
Work will be for sale and a portion will go to the Humboldt Spay Neuter Network.
