A New Gallery and a California Homecoming

This morning After the Rain will arrive on Coronado Island, California, at its new gallery home, Art and Frames by Wood Gallery. Moving my art to Southern California is a homecoming of the heart, since my husband Carlos and I are former residents there. Gallery owner Jill Hardman said she will be featuring my large floral garden paintings in conjunction with the April Coronado Flower Show. If you are in the San Diego neighborhood in the future, take the Duck Boat tour on over to the Island and stop by the gallery and tell Jill howdy! I can hardly wait to meet Jill, and Trish and Glenn at the gallery in person.

If that is not reason enough to head out for a visit, one of my best friends, Mindy, lives in San Diego, along with her two fattypugs, Elvis and Dandy. Elvis is quite famous in puggy circles, as the model pug for the No Pug Left Behind emblem for pug rescue. Elvis had to use a wheelchair when he lost the use of his back legs after eating some of the tainted dog food from a few years ago. Elvis has since regained the use of his back legs, so he is a little miracle pug. It just goes to show what the unconditional love and the care of a good pug mom can achieve.
