Opening Reception for Art Exhibition featuring Mike Ishikawa Friday, December 8, 2023  4:00 PM - 7:00 PM Malaga Cove Library Gallery and Garden

Art Exhibition featuring Mike Ishikawa

Art Show:  December 1 - January 23, 2024
Reception: Friday December 8 4pm – 7pm

Mike Ishikawa is a retired architect by profession, and a pastel painter by discovery. During his vacations, or any time he had some free time, he sketched with pen and ink, filling many sketch books with interesting places he visited. Semi retirement allowed some time to think about new interests, which led to the world of pastel paintings. Being a skier, hiker, and fisherman, painting the outdoors has been one of his passions. Mike uses bold bright colors, strong strokes, shades and shadows and varied textures, to create an image that is similar to the actual image, but with more interest, color and textures. He paints as a hobby and his favorite subjects for paintings are seascapes around PV, old fishing boats, high sierras, deserts and night images of buildings.
