Here is a recent pear painting. I enjoyed putting down a lot of paint. I went to Art Discussion Thursday last week....to see what everyone brought....go HERE.

I don't know how it is possible that I have never seen the movie Vincent and Theo until this weekend. (It was made in 1990). It was so good! Well, there are a couple scenes that are tough to take...and I bet you can guess which ones. Really, really good. 

Some people over by the freeway wanted to remind the motorists that tomorrow is Easter. I got this shot out the car window. Happy Easter!

Today was the "maiden voyage" of a brand new organized group that paints on Tuesdays. Yay! We met at Anna Bananas in St. Johns and then went to Cathedral Park. The clearly obvious thing to paint there .....is the beautiful bridge. 

It was an overcast day. No umbrellas needed!

A huge ship chugged past on the Willamette river. 

To see more photos from the day.....go HERE. :)

It's Monday!

I touched up this Monet-inspired painting today. 

We stopped by Peterson Hall at Linfield College today....to have a look at the photography exhibit about icebergs. 

This photo in the center was my favorite in the exhibit. It looked like a ship. (The whole show was worth seeing!) What are you doing today? :)

Yesterday I went to art discussion at O'Connors. The topic was about finishing paintings.  I think I read that Georgia O'Keeffe worked on several paintings at one time. Isn't that interesting?

To see what everyone brought go HERE
