Red Tower Ginger

ⓒ Barbara Goodsitt

This is what is on my drawing board now: a colored pencil piece of a Red Tower Ginger plant. It is 18" x 25" colored pencil on U-Art pastel paper.

My husband and I saw this beauty on vacation in San Diego, CA. at Balboa Park.   It is such a special place full of museums, gardens and more.  I encourage you to visit it if you are in the area.


Great Lakes Small Works Juried Exhibit

The Great Lakes Small Works Juried Exhibit runs from Sept 2-25 at the Riverside Arts Center in Ypsilanit Michigan. The Artist Reception is Sept 11, from 5-7 pm. There are 70 artists from five of the eight Great Lakes States in this show. It promises to be a visual treat!

Riverside Arts Center is located at 76 North Huron Street in Ypsilanti.  This vital arts center has many exhibits as well as theater and classes.
I was very honored to have two pieces juried into  this show. My still life of Pears and Grapes is included on the postcard. Read a  Review of this show at Ann Arbor.com
