I spent a good part of Father's day at the Portland Art Museum at the California Impressionism exhibit and the Ellsworth Kelly exhibit. In the afternoon I attended a lecture about Impressionism by Jean Stern, Executive Director of the Irvine Museum. Many of my plein air pals were in the audience. The exhibits are wonderful and the lecture was great too. (Slideshow below)
(I'm super-pleased to be among the plein air painters selected to paint in the Oregon Invitational Plein Air paint out this summer, 8/4 and 8/5/12 in the Portland Art Museum South Park Blocks).
Hoping you had a very Happy Father's Day!
