What a great day. This photo was sent to me by my painting friend, Janet Amundson Splidsboel. (Thanks, Janet!) I can't even begin to tell you how much fun it was at Portland Art Museum's Oregon Invitational Plein Air Event. Wow! I saw so many fabulous paintings and tomorrow everyone returns to the Museum Courtyard to put their paintings up on display (for sale). There were so many happy spectators today, it was a pure joy to talk with everyone. The artists all went To Gamblin's for a party afterwards. How cool is that! Hooray for plein air painting and the Portland Art Museum and a huge thanks to everyone who came out to see me!
