    This was from 2010 Festival of Arts summers show

    OK!.. Now I'm finished.. just made some changes,, lowered the clouds, bubble lines in the road, changed the white wall with ice cream on it... A bit of a workout but its finished... I think.... This was based from my little 6x8 inch painting that I posted last week... I knew I would do a larger version of it... This is it, a 30x36 inch oil on gallery wrapped canvas.. I still need some time with her to know really understand all that is going on in this painting..... Once I'm satisfied, I can sign it... Another for my summer show complete ... Checkout what will be in the "Show"

    The Party... The above shots are at the beginning of this wonderful opening of this two month long art show.... There was about 3500 people that showed up for this.... Sales where made, artists where happy.... It was a ball.. The next day I went to work scoring my fellow artists work as I am one of the jurors for this years show... It was difficult as all of the work is really great and I know that someone is going to be cut from next years show, so I take this very seriously in looking at everything about there work.... That being said, I must say my blog paintings have been very will received and I can no longer price them like I did as it would not be fair to my new clients..
    Back to work I go and I should be posting some new blog paintings starting next week.... PS.. I talked all of us up that are a part of the DPs and sent countless people to look at what we are about and doing.. Hope there are new contacts for all....

    Monday, May 5, 2008



    "FLYING HIGH" 40"X50"


    "#3630" 36"X30"


    Here again is the that subtlety of color and working with a little different color palette then I normally use in my most resent of works on my last four canvases. It is so easy to play safe and stay in that comfort zone, I know I must move into another place so here I go... 36x28

    "THE HORBOR" 40"X40"

    Hello my collectors. Here it is again, the Festival of the Arts in (5) more months "Seventy Sixth" year of bringing the arts to you and the world. I am once again proud to be a part of this most magnificent of events. This time I am a juror in this years show and that should be fun to really look at my fellow artists and there work. In the coming weeks I will be posting my paintings that will be on display for the two months starting July 6 to Aug 30... I have been painting most diligently to produce some of my best works to date.
    I am still talking about the skies in my paintings, but I have pushed the envelope by giving the lands a deeper richness and the skies even greater volume. I have fifteen new paintings that I will rotate and there will be from two to four displayed at any one time. I will also have my 6"x6" sky paintings on wood for you to see. I am very exited about this upcoming event and I look forward to seeing there. Please stop at my booth to chat and to have a glass of wine.

    So, come "Celebrate" by joining me and my fellow artists in this awesome setting. The show runs from July 6 to Aug 30, from 10am to 11pm. and I thank you for your kind support.

    Gerald Schwartz


    The newest of paintings for the Laguna show this summer. I wanted the viewer to be able to wonder in this dream like setting. I have things that are close-up so one can move in and around, up and over feeling the air and wetness of the grasses.. Just beyond the hills lies the sea up north in California. Oil on canvas 64"x20"
