I See Your True Colors

One of the things I appreciate most about participating in a group show is that it brings together like minded people and gives us a place to communicate visually and verbally about something we are all passionate about. 

There was so much more art in the gallery than I was able to capture on camera, and I am so proud of everyone for taking the opportunity to put themselves out there. Here are just a few pieces from my fellow artists.

Brandon Coleman is an aspiring graphic novelist, current footwear designer, and a damn good illustrator. I love his quirky characters and the stories they tell.

Bonnie Dominguez was the HBIC of this Art Show. We wouldn't have had an event without her, end of story. This show her colorful oil paintings focused on Bay Area city-scapes but she has also been known to paint over sized junk food and voluptuous women.

Seth Fields engraved wood prints were impressive as always. I love the variety in his subject matter from Mr. T to running shoes to landscapes. Madaly Ahmad's eerie circus images were captivating and his cross hatching technique meticulous.
