Very pleased am I to announce that you “Silicon Valley Types” readers can claim a triumph for yourselves!*  With your input helping, my two drawings above were just accepted into the coming ‘Works on Paper’ Art Exhibit at the Pacific Art League, Palo Alto, CA.

I am also very grateful to Juror Ric Ambrose for this honor. He currently serves as Executive Director of the Richmond, CA, Art Center. Recently he himself won artistic recognition, the honor of Best of Show award, at the prestigious 2017 “Salon” competition at the Triton Museum of Art, Santa Clara, CA.

‘Works on Paper’show will have its opening reception, February 2, 2018, beginning at 5:30 pm, and the public is invited. My art along with the other selected works will continue on view at the site, for all of February and March.
