Aside 30 Aug

Many painting demos can be found this weekend @ Art in the Pearl, downtown Portland in the North Park Blocks.  Most of the booths flanking the park blocks will have community resources art demos, music and food.

Get there early and avoid the afternoon crowds. The weather forecast has improved so it’s going to be a winner!

At one of the first morning meetings in April long-time member Eileen delighted us with multiple sketchbook pages from her two months down in California.  She and her hubby had a place right on the beach and made a habit of walking every morning  collecting shells. This activity led to bringing her treasures back, spreading them out next to her brushes and paints, and recording the jeweled bits in watercolor. Soon she explored a variety of shapes and color within the confines of three inch thumbnails.

Spring vacation ending

30 Mar

All it’s done is rain for most of the week so get over with it…..  so the sun can come out all ready!!!!  Painted this from memory.  I used to have this funny shaped vase that I stuffed with petunias and cosmos during the summer when they got leggy.  Had to paint just to cheer myself up from all the sog and fog.
