Today is the opening for Beloved California VIII, with a reception for the artists from 2 to 4. Jessie has, once again, done a brilliant job hanging the exhibit—and we’re eager to show it off! For you to preview, or if you can’t come in person, we’ve posted the entire show online here and at our online store, here.
This year, we’re very pleased to be adding Timothy Horn to the roster. One of Tim’s pieces is shown here—”Sonoma Barns,” oil on canvas, 11″ x 14″. The stained quartersawn white oak frame is in a 2-1/2″ wide carved slope filleted on the inside and outside, and has a gilt slip.
About this painting, Tim Horn says,
I love those two barns, with their tin roofs, and the smaller pump house up on the hill. The large mass of eucalyptus offers a nice organic shape in contrast with the man-made structures. I’ve painted this beautiful scene in Sonoma county several times before, at different times of day, different seasons, different sizes and compositions, and always from life. Though this is the first time there were sheep in view, and I was very happy to add them as a foreground element. Sheep are fairly simple in their shapes and coloring, but they never really stop moving!
I hope you can join us for the opening today from 2 to 4 and help us welcome Timothy Horn to the roster, toast these twenty-one terrific painters—and, most of all, celebrate with them the beauty of the Northern California landscape.
