I was asked to talk about our plein air paintings on display at the Pittock Mansion this morning during a live news segment on KGW. It was a three minute spot. I got to say a few things about outdoor/alla prima paintings and specifically got to point out work by Michael Fisher and Barbara Masterson. The spot was in conjunction with the Mansion's fundraising plant sale today.
