Painting in Gallery One-Eleven at the Troy Building

Last Saturday a few of us painted in Gallery One-Eleven at the Troy Building. This is where Joanne Radmilovich-Kollman has a studio and she and Sean McGonigal are going to begin offering Saturday open figure sessions (no instruction). This was a "Beta-test" to see if the space seems right ...we decided it is just great for model and still life sessions. Above is my painting "start".

Joanne talks about her own effort here.

The Troy building has traditionally housed a lot of artist studios (and originally it had something to do with Laundry).

So, if you are in Portland and want to know more about these upcoming Saturdays contact Joanne: joradart@comcast(dot)net. 

To see what everyone brought to art discussion on Thursday go HERE

What a great opportunity!
What a fabulous job you did. He looks really good - nice and painterly.
Pretty fancy easel you have there - I like the way it holds a large easel. What type is it?

This looks like a lot of fun. I certainly wish we had something like this here. Hope that you plan on going back. It would be nice to know how their venture is doing.
