Kaiser Bend, 12x9" Pastel on sanded paper. Available
The summer weather in Oregon is just beginning to bring about my favorite type of clothing: flip flops, tank tops, shorts, and sunscreen. You just can't take the California out of me even though I've lived here for nearly 25 years, officially giving me the Oregonian status with the locals. Today was a beautiful one, bringing about a sunburn on the back of my legs from painting this one just off of Kaiser Road in Helvetia, OR. A lovely day to be out painting indeed.
Last weekend I drove the miles to The American Art Co. in Tacoma to participate in "demo day". I worked on a large piece measuring 24x24" in a 4 hour period...more like 3 after all the snack breaks and visiting with the other artists who participated in this event. The 4 other artists were: Misty Martin, Barbara Benedetti Newton, Neil Andersson and Reni Moriarity.
