Laura Mae Dooris. Cornucopia of Discovery. Mixed media on canvas, 36" x 24".
I just learned today about TampaArtist.com, which has an extensive image gallery featuring work by about 200 Bay area artists. About 75% of the names were new to me (unlike, say, Laura Mae Dooris, whose work I've seen in several exhibitions over the past few years), so I recommend checking it out— you may discover someone new to admire or collect.
