My new Gallery: Maison des Artistes

My work is featured in a wonderful new gallery called Maison des Artistes. That's French for "house of artists." I am thrilled to have been invited to show with all of the talented artists. The gallery opens next Friday.

Today I was able to paint this lovely model at Studio 30. She wore a 1920s style hairdo and costume. Here's the result after 3 hours. It needs a little refining but I like the gesture.

Happy Friday!

Today! Reception for Jane Eyre Painters Show

"Jane Eyre" is meant to be a play on words about "Plein Air", but the name fits especially well, as the theme for this new show at the West Linn Library is: Art and Literature.

The Portland Jane Eyre Painters, Jodi Burton, Quin Sweetman, Yer Za Vue, Celeste Bergin and Kat Sowa paint together often on Fridays at Studio 30.
