I've been working on an (seemingly endless) un-art related project so this is my first post in a week! I've missed you! This is an oil study of a young girl in a life session. This is as far as I could get in the time allotted and I was satisfied that I captured a quality about her. She was so much fun to paint.
What are you doing this weekend? How about coming out and hanging with me? I am very happy to be a participant in Paris in the Park Blocks, sponsored by the Portland Art Museum in conjunction with the Tuileries exhibit and celebration of Portland's city parks.
On Saturday, August 9, 40 artists will be painting in the south Park Blocks near the museum (all day). Then...on Sunday we'll be displaying our work for sale in the courtyard beginning at Noon. We did this event 2 years ago and the response was outstanding. Entrance to the museum is Free on Sunday too. I am so looking forward to seeing you there!
