An artful day
Today I went to the Museum Art Book Sale. I didn't know that it started yesterday so I imagine missed out on some great bargains...but I got three books that I'm really happy about. I saw the amazing Thomas Moran Shoshone Falls painting in the Museum and also attended a lecture about the American River in Art. I learned some things about one of my favorite artists, Thomas Hart Benton. At the end of the day I painted a cup of paint brushes. I also put some final touches on my Northwest Nightfall painting. Tomorrow I'll deliver it to the Pittock Mansion for their Winter exhibit: "Northwest Landscape" (November 22-Jan 2). And, what about you? Did you have an artful day??
