Happy Valentine's Day!

The painting above is one that I showed at the art discussion breakfast meeting at O'Connors this morning (the topic today was RED). It's a plein air from a couple of summers ago in Hood River. 

I had the #3 breakfast (always great). To see what everyone brought in ....go HERE.

Thursday evening I met with Columbia River Art Group. 
Cam Morrison is taking a class with Jerry Sumpter

Nila suggested we look at the plein air frames at ASW.

I asked Lindy about what he uses for varnish. This is the one he likes.

The serious art talk often winds up like this! 

I (or should I say my signature) got a cool mention on Annie Salness' blog...swing by to read her Valentine's day post HERE.

I hope you are having a great day! Happy Valentine's Day to all my art friends, near and far!

Thank you, thank you--I looked at all the paintings and read your notes.

I loved Wednesday's Heifer!

Sweet Hood River painting, Celeste! That red against the green really makes it sing.
