Friday

This is an in-progress photo of my portrait of our lovely model at Kat Sowa's studio today. I had to leave early today so I could get to the Interpretations reception at the Columbia Art Gallery in Hood River (slide show below). To see the other painter's versions of the model, go HERE. (And thanks all for all the well wishes for my exhibit(s)!)

The portrait is coming along beautifully, Celeste! I always find myself wondering at what goes on in the model's life when I see your portraits. What is she thinking about? The reception looks held in a beautiful venue. Love those big beams in the ceiling. Looks like a decent turnout as well.

Gros bisous et bon week-end à vous.

If you click on the picture it really works well: brush strokes show up really well.

It's going to make a great portrait.

Enjoyed the trip, I got a bit wet going there, but it was worth it - nice show; hope it went well.
