Gloria having fun painting Longhorns at Del Mar Fair 11 x 14 2015

I am a passionate painter of wildlife and anything nature. I have a thirst to continue learning and I'm now an enthusiastic "newbie" plein air painter as a result of the Plein Air Conventions which were filled with eager and generous folks who love what I love - the outdoors.

My first attempts in competition were fun and I was hooked since my paintings sold. The last convention in April got me so fired up I am now on a personal quest to paint images in the various 25 communities that represent the East County of San Diego.

On one of my first plain air ventures, at a parade, I sold my painting right off the easel in the Art Cocoon holder. San Diego is a tourist town and the buyer loved the carrier. Then I sold one again, in the Art Cocoon while at a large Fair (1.2 million visitors). The owner of the cattle I painted bought it and again, since they had a traveling issue, they loved the carrier.

The bulk of my images are still the wildlife I love most. I have Signature membership in Artists For Conservation and Women Artists of the West. Associate membership in California Art Club, San Diego Art Museum Artists Guild, American Impressionists Society and American Women Artists.

Though serious about art, I need to have my mix of fun in some of the images.
