The Ruhstaller Building on 9th and J Streets

This is an 8"X48" acrylic painting on stretched canvas that is one of eighteen of my acrylic paintings that is part of a two man show at the Elliott Fouts Gallery here in Sacramento. The artist's reception is this Saturday, Feb. 13 from 6-9PM. I expect all my blog visitors to be there...no excuses.

Gosh David. This is so fabulous; I can't decide if the people or the building intrigue me more! I am so enjoying your ability to paint in different styles...from your SF trolley to your portraits to your buildings...All of them wonderful.

Love the subject and size of this one. Know it will be a great show, keep us up to date on the event. I'm packing my bags to attend as I write this. Oops, think the flights are being cancelled at the Dallas airport since it's snowing...sorry, might not make it!!!

Sandy Maudlin said...

I'll be there in blogosphere. Have a great time at your show. Love this piece, too.

Myrna Wacknov said...

Great format and wonderful image. Wish I could be there at the opening! Hope you have a sell out of all your paintings!

David Lobenberg said...

Thanks Autumn. I'm schizo...can't decide wether I like watercolor or acrylic better. I'm an aquarian, and both mediums use water.

David Lobenberg said...

Come on, Ann, can't you take a Greyhound bus or hitch hike?

David Lobenberg said...

Thank you so much fellow watercolorist, Sandy!

Mryna, if I ever have a sell out, I'll stand on my head and eat a raw flounder.

I like it! (I'll be there. I'm just waiting for the plane tickets in the mail so I can come - don't worry, I'm close, near the ocean, well, in Florida.) ;)

Like it from top to toe (esp the format size)! Even the sun looks so fab along with the window reflection...perfect for a lazy evening walk!

Arti said...

Ginny Stiles said...

OH my gosh, David. I would LOVE to there. The tickets are, as other bloggers have suggested, in the mail to me? Hahaha. Take some photos at the show please so we can see how it looks. I am a HUGE HUGE fan of your work. I love the long format reminding us to get out of the old picture plane once in a while!

Now THAT, David, is a BRILLIANT painting!
Should not be for sale.

I know a good painting when I see one. And I just did.

Best wishes for the show.
