Invitation to Redlands

Discussion at the Bowl

I’m pleased to invite you to an exhibition of my artwork of the City of Redlands, sponsored by A.K. Smiley Library. I visited Redlands for the first time a quarter-century ago and it continues to inspire me, personally and professionally. There will be three dozen original drawings and paintings on display, with dozens more to examine in a digital slide show at the exhibit. My entire inventory of Redlands art can be examined online at:

The show runs April 13-20 in the Library’s Assembly Room. A reception will be held Sunday, April 13, 4-6 pm. I hope to see you there. A.K. Smiley Public Library,125 W. Vine St., Redlands, CA. 909-798-7565.

Kimberly Drive

Kimberly Drive

The drive into the California Historic Site, Kimberly Crest attracted me one day and led to a small pastel on a brick-red ground. A larger pastel painting issued from this, above, this one painted on a cool grey pastel paper. The two paintings approach the subject of an arresting afternoon filtered through a thick mass of mature trees from apposing directions:cool and warm, but each express the feeling nicely.
