California Ricelands is done!


Yea! It’s done – I have completed California Ricelands. You may notice (if you look at the previous blog) that the collage’s name has changed. The original name, Rice Fields, was too similar to the name Gregory Kondos used for a painting (also commissioned by the California Rice Commission) a few years back. I’m nothing if not practical! Also, as I told the Rice Commission folks, this will help me differentiate the Ricelands series in the future….. I’m thinking Ricelands of Indonesia, Chinese Ricelands, Japan’s Ricelands,…. You get the idea! I see travels in my future!


Speaking of travels…. Just today I delivered Reflections to the Grange showroom in San Francisco’s Showplace Square. It will be part of a “vignette” that will be displayed through “Winter Market”. For those of us who are not interior designers, that translates to mid-February.

Madison Range and Rice Fields

Rice Fields is nearing completion. It uses a very different palette from most of my work – much more pastel – and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying it. I should have it in my studio until Second Saturday in December.

Madison Range will be heading off to Montana at the end of this year, so come by and see it soon.
