This is a painting I recently painted in two sessions. I enjoyed using a palette knife and also giving it a 2nd pass. I may add a few more touches.
My "BFF" Sondra moved back from California to Oregon. So to celebrate her homecoming on Tuesday I drove to Salem to see her and have lunch. Here is our selfie!
We had lunch at a pretty McMenamins
We also went to the Salem Library (Sondra needed books). While there I discovered their lending program of original art. Well, that's different!
I've never seen anything like this before. It seems like a good idea....I think (?)
Today Dave and I went to the Portland Art Museum to see The Art of the Louvre's Tuileries Garden
In the front lobby art was being installed for the Joel Shapiro exhibit. I thought the skyjack lift was as cool as the art.
Inside the PAM show there are huge sculptures that were actually in the Paris Garden. It was so fun to examine the super-beautiful sculptures..especially their hands and feet. We were allowed to take photos with our mobile phones "only".
My phone is still on here, just in case I needed to take more photos!
In the lower floor was a good photography exhibit: Two-Way Street: The Photographs of Garry Winogrand and Jonathan Brand. That's my report from two great days. What have you been up to?
