"Karin" watercolor portrait for "Let's Face It" show at UCR in Palm Desert

"Karin" watercolor. One of my portraits in the show "Let's Face It" curated by Karen and Tony Barone. Unbelievably, I could not find the other portrait that was accepted in the show, so I had to re-paint it. And....I forgot to photograph it before I dropped it off this morning. You'll have to attend the show to see it :-} Opening reception this Thursday evening, 27th at UCR, Frank Sinatra at Cook, Palm Desert. 5:30-7:30. Hope to see you there!

Here’s how it works.  You can preview work at
432 artists have turned in art already.  Mine will be turned in next week when they are dry.

This years event is April 12, 2014 at 4:30 at the Riviera Palm Springs Hotel, Grand Ballroom.
