Hanging at City Hall



Contrary to the Clint Eastwood Westerns, the title "Hanging at City Hall" does sound a little like a hanging, but it's not. This morning I was at Portland City Hall installing my work for a second round, at Commissioner Dan Saltzman's office. Portland City Hall is classically built with marble and oak. I think this was one of the fastest installations I have ever done, finishing in a little over an hour! You can view the work from 8am~5pm, Monday through Friday on the 2nd floor for the month of January.

"Other Side of Paulina" 8x10" Pastel on sanded paper

On another note, I've had this painting around for some time and had put it into the "I'll get around to that later" pile. It needed work! So I pulled this one out and re-worked the pastel by adding a little more color and contrast. I am donating this piece to my daughter's orchestra, OPAYCO "Winter Cheer" annual Fundraising Concert scheduled for January 16th in Lake Oswego.

Lavender Laps- very nice.

Brenda, has anyone mentioned that your blog updates don't show up on their blogger dashboard? Or is that just a problem I have with a few??
