New Art Show at the Blue Dot

On left, original cut paper illustrations for Who Has More? and Who Is Bigger?
My art show is up at the Blue Dot Café in Alameda and last Saturday we had a lively opening reception.  While the adults chatted, viewed the art, and enjoyed snacks and drinks, the children, supervised by my brother Tom (an artist himself and a third grade teacher), colored, cut and pasted and made their own wonderful art creations.  It was a very enjoyable party and I thank all of you who came to celebrate with me!  And special thanks to James and Megan Hume, owners of the Blue Dot, who have now invited me twice to exhibit at their wonderful well lighted café with walls perfect for setting off my art. The show includes prints of the cut paper illustrations from my animal books published by Picture Window Books as well as original art from my folding books for young children, Who Has More? and Who Is Bigger?  The show will be up for six weeks, until February 29th, so if you are in the Bay Area, please stop by the Blue Dot to take a look and sample their delicious food. The Blue Dot is open for breakfast and lunch. Hours: m-f, 7:30-5:00; sat, 8:00-2:00; sun, 8:00-2:00. Phone: 510-523-2583. Address: 1910 Encinal Avenue, Alameda, CA 94501. For directions, go to www.bluedotcafeandcoffeebar.com . Most of the prints on exhibit are also available at my online gallery at etsy.com
